5 out of 5 stars

A mischievous crab snaps at the other sea creatures and surprises them. Crab meets a pink jellyfish, a seahorse, a blue fish, a starfish, and a sea turtle. They are all startled by the snapping sound. But when a big shark comes in sight, little crab decides to hide.

I love the die-cut openings in this board book! As you turn each page, the crab’s pincers get smaller and smaller as the cut openings get smaller.

The artwork is very cute and colorful! Just right for little readers who are attracted to bright contrasting colors. The art style is cartoony and simple, with fun ocean floor backgrounds.
Another great thing about this book is that each sea creature is described by their color. The blue fish, the pink jelly, the grey shark, the blue fish, the yellow seahorse, and the green sea turtle. This is a great way to teach toddlers their colors!

The text rhymes with good writing and good rhythm. I am very picky about rhyming in children’s books, but this one passes the test and has excellent rhymes that fit the story.

This whole book is adorable!
