Things in the Sea are Touching me!

written by Linda Jane Keegan

published by Scholastic NZ

You'll squawk, screech, yelp... and laugh out loud at the surprises for all on this funny-sunny family day at the beach.  When a small child goes to the seaside with her Mum and Ma, she is unprepared for 'things' floating in the water. Ma explains what each one is and that it is nothing to be afraid of... then gets a big fright herself when Mum grabs her ankle!


This fun rhyming story celebrates family diversity while also dealing with children’s fears. Available in English and te reo Maori editions, the latter featuring a comprehensive papakupu (glossary), it is perfect for ages 3 to 6.
