Wave by Suzy Lee
We stumbled upon this story in the library’s new arrival section and being lovers of stories with no words brought it home. Sitting side by side with your child and imagining the pages is one of the most wonderful experiences. The vivacious illustrations allowed us to see the emotions of the girl as she experiences the vast power and joy of an ocean swell. Rapture on her face, the girl shows her mother all she’s experienced. Anyone who has kicked at the waves will understand the joy this girl has in splashing for what appears the first time. This is a lovely book to expand the imagination and pleasure of the ocean.
