When frogs get together, they love to sing! They fill their big, bulgy throat pouch with air and sing out loud. Some peep, some trill, some growl, some creek, and some go WAAH, WAAH, WAAH! It's a chorus that happens near almost every pond and stream. Learn more about these delightful creatures--and sing along with them!

Octavia Octopus and her sea-animal friends love playing camouflage games to practice how they would hide from a "big, hungry creature." Octavia, however, just cannot seem to get her colors right when she tries to shoot her purple ink cloud. What happens when the big, hungry shark shows up looking for his dinner? This creative book introduces basic colors along with the camouflage techniques of various sea animals - a great introduction to marine biology! The "For Creative Minds" educational section includes fun facts about octopuses and animal camouflage and protection. The craft uses primary colors (paint or tissue paper) to help children learn about blending colors.

Publisher: Arbordale Publishing ISBN: 9781934359532

Las estaciones cambian tanto en el océano como en la tierra. La primavera trae nuevas plantas y nuevos animales bebes, el verano oceánico está radiante por el destello de las luces del plankton y las brisas otoñales soplan las vastas aguas. En el invierno, las ballenas jorobadas emigran a aguas cálidas, igual que como lo hacen muchos animales en la tierra que se mudan a climas más calidos. Los niños aprenden de forma divertida, acerca de las plantas y de los animales que están debajo del agua, unidos por las diferentes estaciones, por la red de comidas y por el hábitat. Mientras la historia sucede en el Océano Pacífico, cambios similares ocurren alrededor de todo el mundo.
