A few weeks ago I was delighted to receive an email from author Paul Gallagher asking me if I could review his children's picture book. I immediately jumped at the chance. The book sounded so cute from his description and I loved that the book is dedicated to his grandson Logan. A portion of each book sold will be donated to non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting the marine environment.

I have a background in early childhood education and development, and have worked with children for years now.

I won this book through a Goodreads Giveaway.

My two year old niece and I read this book together and she really seemed to enjoy it. The artwork is really nice and is done to look like a coloring book page that has been colored in with crayon. My niece really enjoyed the pictures and hearing the story.

My 5 year old boy loved this book. He followed the story line, because it was simple. It's about a surfer who has a secret surfing spot where he also meets a seal. My son got excited over some of the colorful pictures. Very cute & fun book for a child.

I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.

Ti get this free as a goodreads first read. It was kind of cute but was a bit more wordy for what I think of as a puncture book
