Description

This joyful and soothing book about ocean sounds for kids 3-7 will transport readers to the seaside. 

When a child visits the ocean with his little brother, he whispers to him, “The ocean has lots to say, if you listen.” Together, they hear wondrous things, like the rumble of pebbles tumbling and filling the beach with shiny gems, the bark of a seal playing peekaboo, and the whooshing of a shell murmuring messages. 

The second book in the Sounds of Nature Series for young children, I Hear You, Ocean is an excellent resource for outdoor education and social-emotional learning, helping to teach: 

  • How to engage with nature in fun and respectful ways 
  • Mindfulness and empathy with the world around us
  • Positive and gentle play with younger siblings
  • The ocean makes magical sounds—you just have to listen!

Praise for I Hear You, Forest by Kallie George and Carmen Mok

?Through each lush and atmospheric page turn, we meet new animals and feel the empathy the child experiences for the beauty and marvel that surrounds her? I encourage parents to read this book to their children and then take them on a stroll through their local park or forest.?
?Good Reads with Ronna

"Readers will feel transported into another world"
?TinyBeans

 ?A lovely new picture book reminding readers that any sojourn into nature is enriching, but will be much more so when we activate all of our senses and awareness.?
