Count the fish from one to ten as each joins the game, then count back down to one when the leader snacks on a sea spider and sets off an unfortunate chain reaction (swallow the leader!). Luckily for everyone, fish number ten-the shark-gulps down his prey too quickly, and burrrrrrrp! they all swim out again.&nbsp

'" -School Library Journal " Smith's undersea romp is an enjoyable rhyme that, while introducing different denizens of the briny deep, could easily be adapted to a finger play or body rhyme at storytime?

I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean "Bright colors and bold, simple shapes will be surefire eye magnets for preschoolers." - PW, starred Pirate Nap "This title inspires creative play . . . a treasure." - SLJ "With staccato sentences that never waste a syllable . . . [a] lively concept-book creation." -Kirkus Two at the Zoo "An engaging read-aloud for storytime and one-on-one sharing." - SLJ "A wild way to help kids learn their numbers." - Parenting "
