Let's go on a adventure and lets be any sea animal in which you want to be. We will discuss what animals live in the ocean and then turn off all the lights in the classroom and go hunting for a pearl. This is an excellant game to teach the children that the dark isnt so bad and they shouldn't be scared of the dark especially when you have an awesome game to play to help you go to sleep.
This is a story of determination, perseverence (especially in the face of a fearful situation), and friendship. This tale has the same catchy rhythm as the first book, with a fun, rhyming narrative.

I liked the story and the message that things are easier when friends help us. The illustrations are really fun and add to the story.
