Reviews - What do customers think about Commotion in the Ocean?
It's Ok Apr 13, 2008
After reading all the great reviews I decided to buy this book for my 2-year-old son. I was pretty disappointed with it. The poems lack any real information about the animals and, in a lot of cases, are simply wrong. Maybe I'm spoiled by the Douglas Florian books, which my son and I absolutely love, but I think if you're looking for something worthwhile to read to your children (something fun that's not just inaccurate fluff) this is not it.
Great find Dec 30, 2007
this book came in great condition and very quickly. My son loves the story and the pop ups are an additional bonus
The Pop-Up Commotion in the Ocean Feb 12, 2007
Fantastic pop up book! Easy to keep the Preschool children's attention when telling this story.
Dive Right In (but watch out for sharks!) Feb 5, 2007
I'm not sure what the commotion is, but these short poems are the perfect length for preschoolers who love word play, are expanding their vocabulary, are fascinated with various animals, but lack the attention span for "more sophisticated" poetry. The poems feature different meters so it does mix things up a bit more than, say, "Green Eggs and Ham", and the illustrations are colorful and fun and only add to the enjoyment.
This is a fun, fun book. As a twist, the first time you read it, read the poem and have your child guess the animal (you'll have to replace the name of the animal in some of the poems with "I" or "we" to do this.)
4-Year-Old's Favorite for in the Car Oct 14, 2006
