On Kiki’s Reef
by Carol L. Malnor (Author) and Trina L. Hunner (Illustrator)
Booktalk: A tiny baby sea turtle scrambles across the sandy beach and into the sea. Floating far out in the ocean, Kiki is becoming a gentle giant. She swims to shallower water where a rainbow of corals puts on a show. Kiki adopts the busy coral reef as her new home and discovers fish of all sizes and lots of surprises! (Each page had prose at the top and poetry at the bottom!)
Snippet: Surf and spray carry Kiki away.
She paddles wildly. The wide open ocean is a big place for a little turtle.
She searches for food and hides from big fish that would swallow her in one bite. Kiki is smart and brave.
Kiki paddles helter-skelter.
Beds of seaweed give her shelter.
This week’s Poetry Friday Round-up will be hosted by My Juicy Little Universe.
