Dive into the ocean to join a young turtle on a game of hide-and-seek, and learn about sea creatures and their habitat, with this beautiful, “touch and feel” layered board book. The perfect introduction for preschool children to sea creatures and their habitats, this simple, charming story, which unfolds across a series of layered pages that increase in size, is about a turtle playing hide-and-seek with his friends, and shows different animal families as they go about their daily lives. With gently rhyming text and beautiful illustrations, the book encourages children to interact with the book and turn each page, delighting in the increasingly expansive ocean spreads.
