Book Review: The Little Seahose by Sheri Fink

The Little Seahorse


The Little Seahose by Sheri Fink

About the Book: The bashful Little Seahorse discovers a mysterious object during his adventures and has to learn to speak up for himself and ask for help in order to bring his mother this amazing gift. In the process, he increases his self-confidence and makes wonderful new friends.


My Review: When a little Seahorse was out happily exploring the ocean floor he came across an orb nestled in the brown sand. He became intrigued and started to poke it with his nose and tail. He notices that the object was hard and heavy to play with but it looked so beautiful. So he decided to give it as a gift to his mother. When the Little Seahorse heard two large Pipe fish swimming by he hid and watched while the pipe fish try to pick up the orb.

The Seahorse was scared but really wanted to give the orb to his mother. He will have to over come his shyness and have the courage to speak to the Pipe fish. And if they do let him have the orb he will need to ask them for their assistance in helping him bringing to orb to his mother.

What is he going to do, will he find the courage to stand up to the pipe fish and bring the orb home to his mother?

What an interesting book that will speak to children that find it hard to speak up for what they want. It will encourage them to ask for help even though they feel nervous. And do you know that asking for help leads to making friends?

This story is beautifully illustrated by Mary E. Washam who made use of bright colors to help tell the story. If you are currently working with children dealing with the issue of shyness then this is a great book to recommend.

  2. One of my grandchildren is so terribly sensitive and shy. Thanks for reviewing this book Ella. It would be the perfect story to read and give the boost needed to speak up hopefully. 🙂
