Publishers Description Open this book and walk along the ocean shore. If you look carefully, you might find all kinds of things. Some--like shells and sea glass--will be small enough to fit in your hand. Others--like the sun and the sky and the waves--will be too big to carry home. But no matter what your journey holds, you'll soon discover that looking for the ocean's treasures can be as important as finding them.

Reviews - What do customers think about Out of the Ocean?
Beautifully Written Sep 28, 2007
I read this book for the first time when a toddler that I watch picked it out of her stack of books. I didn't know what to expect, but found that I was captivated from the very first sentence. The words are like poetry. The conversation between mother and daughter about the ocean flows beautifully, and actually caused me choke up a bit. I ran out buy it for MY child's literature collection!
As deep as the ocean itself Jan 25, 2002
In a time of mushrooming materialism and tearing technomania, this delightful book for all ages pays homage to life's precious treasures that can be so easily taken for granted if we are not careful to notice them. Debra Frasier's enchanting collages combine cutouts, photographs, and words to eloquently remind us of the simple pleasures that are right under our noses if we remain open and take a moment to appreciate them.
A joyous celebration of simple treasures. Jul 6, 1999
This is a very sweet book for any age, any setting, to read over and over. I'm buying a stack to use as gifts.
Awsome Photos - Great lesson for kids! Jun 21, 1998
Awsome photos and collage art make this a visually stimulating book for children. The second graders in my class loved it and clearly understood the deeper meaning of appreciating all of the gifts we receive each day - sunrise, air, water, etc.
