Things in the Sea are Touching me!
By Linda Jane Keegan
Published by Scholastic NZ
You'll squawk, screech, yelp... and laugh out loud at the surprises for all on this funny-sunny family day at the beach. When a small child goes to the seaside with her Mum and Ma, she is unprepared for 'things' floating in the water. Ma explains what each one is and that it is nothing to be afraid of... then gets a big fright herself when Mum grabs her ankle!
This fun rhyming story celebrates family diversity while also dealing with children’s fears. Available in English and te reo Māori editions, the latter featuring a comprehensive papa kupu (glossary), it is perfect for ages 3 to 6.
