The Underwater Alphabet Book by Jerry Pallotta and Edgar Stewart

One of my kids’ all-time-favourite alphabet books is this gem. Technically, this book is more about the animals in the ocean than the alphabet, even though it does feature the creatures alphabetically — but that is precisely why the kids love it, since they can’t get enough of animals in general!

Every page features a short but informative write-up with fun tidbits about the featured creature, and I love how unexpectedly un-serious — in a good way — the book is; in fact, thanks to the author’s offbeat humour and easy, conversational style of writing, it’s one of the most engaging non-fiction books for kids we’ve read to date.

The beautiful and realistically rendered illustrations also combine with the text to make for an enjoyable underwater expedition that is not to be missed!
