When Mrs. Seahorse lays her eggs, she does it on Mr. Seahorse's belly! While he swims waiting for the eggs to hatch, he meets some other underwater fathers caring for their babies: Mr. Tilapia, who carries his babies in his mouth; Mr. Kurtus, who keeps his on his head; and Mr. Catfish, who is baby-sitting his young hatchlings. She knows he will take very good care of them.
Eric Carle has carried out it again, with astonishingly beautiful collage illustrations and a story that introduces the very young to the wonders of aquatic life. A"hide and seek"function with acetate overlays adds a colorful surprise. and some quite particular daddies.
Are you ready for a scintillating seahorse fact? Well, repetition will be the heart of instruction, after all. In Mister Seahorse, master collage artist Eric Carle teaches preschoolers this lesson and introduces them to a few other fish who bear the traditionally maternal burden of caring for eggs: the stickleback, tilapia, Kurtus nurseryfish (known here as Mr. Kurtus) , pipefish, and bullhead catfish. The father seahorse may be the 1 who carries the mother's eggs around in his pouch before they hatch. Cut-up tissue paper soaks up the watery paint and makes for a boldly colorful, almost jewel-like undersea journey. The story? As ever, it's Carle's art that steals the show.
Most of Carle's books employ some sort of gizmo or gadget--and this one is no exception."(Preschool) --Karin Snelson Children may take comfort inside the devotion of these undersea fathers. Here, for a splendid lesson in camouflage, colorful acetate sheets mask marine life that is revealed as the child turns the page. except perhaps at the very finish when the father seahorse says to a freshly hatched sea-pony who wants back in the pouch:"I do love you, but now you are ready to become on your own.
