Board Book Review: Zoom Ocean Adventure

Zoom by Susan Hayes
Zoom: Ocean Adventure

5 out of 5 stars


Noah goes on an ocean adventure, first snorkeling in a coral reef, then diving deep in a submarine, finding a sunken treasure, and moving into Antarctic waters.

I love the die-cut openings in this board book! Each one is like a little peek into the next adventure, and the openings are arranged very cleverly. There is also a surprise pop-out design at the end that is very cool!

The illustrations are so colorful and bright! I love the cartoony style of the art and how expressive Noah is. You can really see the action in the artwork as Noah discovers new things on every page.
Each ocean creature is labeled with its name, and the story explains some of the things the fish and animals are doing. A sea otter almost eats a crab, and some dolphins try to get a jellyfish snack.
The coolest part of the story is when Noah uses the robotic arm on his submarine to grab the sunken pirate treasure.

I am so impressed with this book! It’s fun and informative and beautifully designed.
