My Ocean is Blue
The natural world is fascinating, and as human beings, we are often captivated by science and nature. This picture book shows a young girl’s enchanted exploration of an ocean, carefully observing and appreciating the sights she sees at the beach with simple, sensory detail. The vivid and rhythmic text helps highlight the human condition by featuring the reflections of a girl with disabilities, contrasted with the magical ocean creatures who adapt to their environments. Suitable in a primary classroom, the book lends itself as a read-aloud and to segue into further research opportunities about the adaptations of living things in the ocean or writing projects using sensory vocabulary, as exemplified in the resource.
