Counting Sea Life with the Little Seahorse is an educational and delightfully illustrated children’s book, written by Sheri Fink and Derek Taylor Kent, and illustrated by Lynx Animation Studios. Immediately engaging the reader, the Little Seahorse takes children through a marvelous underwater world of magic and mystery, utilizing aquatic friends in showing how easy and fun it is to count. Whether it be whales, turtles or hungry sharks waiting in the midst, your child will ride the waves of happiness in learning the joy of counting with these enchanting underwater creatures in brilliant color.

Taking a child through the learning process of counting numbers 1 through to 20, Sheri Fink and Derek Taylor Kent have provided a magical and colorful world which will entice, excite and encourage any child to learn their numbers. Although I am well past the age of learning these things, I still found myself wearing a broad smile as I turned each page and entered a new world of color and entertainment. Some of the sea creatures were new to me, and their extraordinary fantasy-like activities piqued my interest through to the very end. Never before had I seen an underwater version of Romeo and Juliet until today, but I am sure it will be entering my dreams when I sleep tonight. Counting Sea Life with the Little Seahorse would definitely be an ideal book to add to your home library, having your child counting a vast array of marine life on their way to dreamland each night. I thoroughly enjoyed this educational journey, and recommend it to be read to children prior to entering kindergarten, resulting in some good counting habits.
