Roundtable Reviews features little more than book reviews and book news. We don't just stick to one genre. We have varying tastes and may be after a heartwarming romance one day, a new adult novel the next, and a creepy horror the day after that. Our book reviews always take one thought into consideration -- Would I pay the asking price for this book?

Here’s a simple board
book for youngsters just beginning to discover the joy of turning
pages and looking at picture books. Large, colorful illustrations of
sea creatures are featured in this counting book that only goes up to
First, the child will
discover a large Blue Whale followed by two green sea turtles and
three Grey Dolphins. Finally there are four seahorses and five
starfish plus a concluding page of a school of small fish.
This book will work
nicely with children up to about the age of two or perhaps three who
are ready to identify the pictured critters as well as beginning
counting. I like the book because the pages are easy for little
fingers to turn so the youngster can begin to get a feel for handling
a book without adult assistance.
