Hi,

I'm hoping someone might be able to help me. DS (4.1) seems to be mad keen on the Octonauts at the moment and he has asked for a book that has information about the sea creatures in the stories. So a sort of factual reference type book about sea creatures, but suitable for a 4yo. Can anyone suggest one?

Thanks Smile

My sons have a really good book about an ex-pirate who now owns an aquarium. The book takes you around the aquarium and has fact about the animals scattered around, separate from the actual story.

My 2 DS are Octonauts fans (aged 8 & 5) and they love this Usbourne book:

www.amazon.co.uk/Under-Sea-See-Inside-Usborne/dp/0746096380/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1352881480&sr=1-2&tag=mumsnet&ascsubtag=mnforum-21

with flaps to lift up etc. I think it would be suitable for a 4 year old - think DS2 got it for his 4th birthday in fact.

Ooh both of those look fab Grin Thank you Smile

We have some of the other see inside books that we were given when ds was a baby and they're great - DS is just about ready for them now I think Smile
