Water Sings Blue: Ocean Poems by Kate Coombs, illustrated by Meilo So

Review:

Water Sings Blue: Ocean Poems - Kate Coombs,Meilo SoSuch an adorable collection! It’s made for kids, so the poems are mostly short and all cute, as are the accompanying illustrations.

Come down to the shore with this rich and vivid celebration of the ocean! With watercolors gorgeous enough to wade in by award-winning artist Meilo So and playful, moving poems by Kate Coombs, Water Sings Blue evokes the beauty and power, the depth and mystery, and the endless resonance of the sea.

I love the ocean, so I really had to pick this up when I saw it. Again, it’s a kids book, so it’s the size of a typical picture book at just 32 pages. The poems felt a little stacked all over each other, but that could have been more the fault of my reader (read in browser from the library) than the book itself. I’d definitely read it again with my son when he’s ready for a bit more poetry. As it is we’re working through some classics first.

As mentioned above, I had a library copy but it can also be found for purchase at Amazon and  the Book Depository.
