Peep in the Deep - Sea Creature Counting Book by R.M. SmithI just received this as a free giveaway through Goodreads First Reads.
The book, Peep in the Deep is intended to be an introduction to numbers and sea creatures. It does achieve its goal as it is a good basic book to introduce children to counting 1-10. However, I felt that it missed the opportunity to be more than a basic book.
The illustrations were very colorful and eye catching. They were a nice blend between realism and illustration. I liked how up to number 5, the previous number of sea animals also appeared on the left hand side of the new numbers illustration (ex. the four dolphin are looking back at the 5 swordfish). This would allow for a review of the number, a compare/contrast of the two numbers or two animals, etc. I would have liked to see this pattern continue throughout the book. I also liked the way that he illustrated each consecutive number with the creatures for that number spreading ever farther to the left. What a great visual for the idea of more than/less than.
The premise of the story was cute, with the idea of it being a dream. I liked how the last page provided a different animal, bird rather than fish, so you could have the children guess about what would be different about the next dream.
However, I found that some of the vocabulary was a little bit difficult for the intended age group, and would have preferred a more basic/standard rhyme scheme to allow for extended use of the book in other teachable areas.
Again, overall, it is a nice book to introduce children to both numbers and sea animals. I would definitely provide this for my students to use independently, but would probably not use it as a teacher resource.
