Rebeccasreads highly recommends OCEAN WHISPER/SUSURRO DEL OCEANO no matter what your mother tongue is, because... other than the flyleaves & the opening poem in both English & Spanish, this bedtime story is told all in picture... gorgeous, dreamy pictures of the life to be found in the deep blue sea.
Of shells & sounds, fishes & water, whales & mermaids, aquariums & dreams, all exquisitely illustrated by Dennis Rockhill.
A lovely way to fill your children's minds as they ready for sleep.

This wonderfully illustrated picture book begins with a mesmerizing poem that will lead children to a boy's bedroom.
During the dark hours of the night - the boy and his room are transformed. Dreams give way for the aquatic world in which to come to life!
Illustrations are exquisite and as I soon found out - children will use them to conjure up their own unique tales of adventure! This little masterpiece is great for young and old alike.

boy dreams about being a whale in the ocean May 30, 2005
A series of pictures is introduced by a 12-line poem "Ocean Whisper." The poem relates a young boy's dream that he is a whale cavorting with other whales in the ocean. The pictures are scenes from his dream. Dennis Rockhill, the illustrator, uses an artistic technique involving sketching and multiple layers of the scenes to create illustrations that capture the similar undersea world and world of a dream. A picture of whales and a fishbowl the young boy looks at in his bedroom as he is trying to fall asleep spur his dream. Ages 3-6.
Imaginative Ocean Interaction May 20, 2005
My 4 year old son loves this book. I am intrigued to watch his eyes move about the page and point and discuss different things about the undersea world. This definitely strenghtens his imagination. I am amazed at the realism in the illustrations. Especially the underwater reflectivity from the light streaming down into the ocean depths.
