About this title


Ocean Surprises uses the experiences of the ocean's inhabitants during a raging storm as a metaphor for the human spirit's ability to overcome adversity. A grandfather seahorse calms the fears of his grandson by pointing to sea shells successfully weathering the storm and explaining how courage allows spirits to grow stronger and fear to diminish in order to outlast personal storms. What others are saying about Ocean Surprises "As a mother, I can't fathom the pain experienced by these two women, as they watched their children endure such immense physical and mental hardship," says First Lady of Texas Anita Perry. "Through Debbie's simple prose and Connie's striking illustrations, 'Ocean Surprises' reminds us of the timeless lesson that through hardship, we gain strength." "Ocean Surprises is an effortless and elegant story of the cycle of adversity and resilience. I read it to my children to help them to understand what Daddy does at work. Like all great children's books, its message is applicable to young and old." -Adam Borah, psychiatrist with extensive experience in the assessment and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder "Ocean Surprises is a delightfully touching book that addresses the challenges which accompany unexpected life changes. It very gently and creatively expresses the fear and confusion that a child may feel when faced with difficult circumstances. What a wonderful tool for us to provide for children and their families facing difficult medical issues." -Lindsey Joy, Manager, Children's Miracle Network Brazos Valley
