Raves & reviews:

Praise for Slide & Surprise in the Ocean:

"Every page of this pull-the-tab book features weird and wonderful marine life hiding in a vibrantly illustrated underwater environment... The illustrations are colorful and detailed, giving young children plenty to look at while they are listening to the text. Some of the text guides readers through the book by posing questions that can be answered by pulling the tabs; other tabs ask readers to do things like identify starfish by their colors or count sea gulls that multiply with the pull of a cleverly telescoping tab.. An entertaining, well-designed introduction to the ocean world." — Kirkus Reviews
