My Rating: 3 out of 5 Wave-Making Robots
Recommends for readers of Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman, Stone Rabbit series by Erik Craddock and Mighty Mighty Monsters series by Sean O'Reilly.
Summary: Kolten meets an underwater robot named Rip at the beach. Rip shows Kolten his home.
Review: Snorkeling is a delightful read with vibrant illustrations. It will be a great introduction to graphic novels as it is easy to navigate. I'm often intimidated by the layout of graphic novels and move them to the pile of Daddy read-alouds.
The large illustrations and sparse text make this an excellent conversational book to explore "reading" the pictures. Small children can work on their narrative skills, while those a little bit older will enjoy the robots and oceanic humor. Didn't you know the waves, bubbles and mysteries of the sea are controlled by underwater robots?
Fun Extras: There are three activities at the end of the book to extend reading. Fabulous!
Sensitive Readers Beware: None. Good read for all ages. This would be a fun book to read with the whole family.
