9781452145150: Over the Ocean

2017 Mildred L. Batchelder Award Winner

Renowned children's book creator Taro Gomi has created another masterpiece. In this beautiful testament to wondering, a young girl gazes out to where the water meets the sky and wonders what lies beyond the waves. Boats filled with toys? Skyscrapers filled with people? Houses filled with families? Or, maybe, over the ocean stands someone not so different from the girl herself, returning her gaze. In this celebration of imagination's power, young readers will find joy in the mystery of the faraway, the unknown, and the just-beyond.

About the Author:

Taro Gomi has created more than 350 books for readers of all ages, including Bus Stops, My Friends, Spring Is Here, Scribbles, and Doodles. He lives in Tokyo, Japan.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1-A dark-haired child in red overalls clasps hands behind his or her back while gazing at vistas of the ocean and wondering what might be beyond it. Each page turn leads readers to the child's imaginative speculation about farms, cities, bullies, amusement parks, exotic animals, and even a beach where another child mirrors the narrator's actions. A constant on the horizon is a steamer progressing along the page from right to left. Spare text and vibrant color are typical of Gomi's mood pieces. VERDICT The book's elegant simplicity lends itself not only to pointing out visual details but also to encouraging a listening child's own speculations. Perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
