Water Sings Blue: Ocean Poems - Kate Coombs

Released March 14, 2012

Book review by Tracy Farnsworth

In celebration of April's National Poetry Month, pick up a copy of Kate Coombs' Water Sings Blue. The collection of ocean/sea-related poems is certain to win the hearts of parents and child. Anyone who's been to the ocean knows the feeling of standing on the sandy beach listening to the waves as they hit rocks and beach. It's a soothing sound and the poems in Water Sings Blue captures that feeling.

There are more than a dozen poems that talk about boats, sea life, and the water itself. From the cries of seagulls to the piece of driftwood found on the beach after the tide rolls in, the collection of poems really captures the magic of the ocean. Add in the illustrations by award-winning illustrator Meilo So and you have images that truly complement the poetry. I think parents will love these poems just as much as their children.
