A First Book of the Sea


‘A First Book of the Sea’ is quite wonderful. This is a testament to the full wonder of the sea. Nicola Davies leads us from the earliest voyages known across the Pacific ocean, to seaside visits to the pier. We learn about sailing ships, the movement of crabs, and fishing methods in places far away.

The sea, in all its varied forms is truly explored. Turning every page, the reader is offered another subject to enjoy and contemplate. Sea shanties, pearl divers, nocturnal phosphoresce, ‘A First Book of the Sea’ is all encompassing and glorious. Emily Sutton’s subtle sea-foam light colouring pictures match the tone and subject perfectly.

A First Book of the Sea‘ is a ‘forever’ book. Nicola Davies’ third of the series is as wonderful as its two award- winning predecessors- A First Book of Animals  and  A First Book of Nature
