Rock Pool Secrets
Published: 2017 by Walker Books
Level: Early Years (R-2)
Another stunning picture book from award winning Narelle Oliver with her trademark illustrations in linocut, lino etch and watercolour. Exploring the rock pool, small fish, some crabs and other life is obvious but look carefully past the empty shells, deeper in the pool, in holes and crevices, out on the pool ledge to discover all the life that is secreted there. Fold-out cut out pages, full width double pages make the book an exploration in itself with lots of detail and lots to look at and discuss. Factual information is provided further at the end of the book unfolding to four pages wide. A wonderful book to keep as part of a home collection.
