The story is laid out by each page having two questions the child is wondering about with the ocean, which she is hoping one day she could go and see for herself by saying, I wish I could go and see The illustrations are a double page spread with vivid and beautiful illustrations that would be very intriguing to young readers This book could be used for teaching young children strong illustrations and would spark great discussion about a child s imagination I read the book in a digital format to be read on an iPad or a Kindle and I also read it in traditional format The traditional format had stronger illustrations that were displayed across the whole page where the digital format had illustrations that were a lot smaller This story, though simple, could be used in elementary classrooms to open up conversations for students to have about the world that they live in The story poses the question, what is over the ocean , and on each page explores various possibilities of what could be over the ocean in question form It starts with ideas mostly involving settings such as farms and cities, but as the story continues it explorespossibilities of how people may live over the ocean In addition to the simple This story, though simple, could be used in elementary classrooms to open up conversations for students to have about the world that they live

up a world of possibilities for kids by showing illustrations of people and what they might be doing over the ocean I like this idea because for kids, it is often hard for them to imagine a world beyond their own When they look at a globe or map, even though they may be told that people live in all different places, it is often very hard for them to picture people doing similar or even different activities from them, or to think that there are houses other than the ones that they live in There are people who may look different or partake in different activities, but yet they are still people, not so different from them who are living their lives across the ocean, and that the people over there may be posing the same question themselves I think the ideal age for this story would be older elementary grades, as it would help them expand their world views and use critical thinking to analyze how people in different parts of the world may live, but they can also see all the similarities that there may be no matter where you live or who you are It could also be used with young elementary students to introduce them to the idea of the world and people who live in various parts of the world, but a lot of young students probably would not be able to analyze the same way older elementary students would Therefore, I think teachers could use for various ages but the way you use it would vary from grade to grade All in all, I thought this was an excellent book for expanding world views and to facilitate open ended discussions in which there is no right answer but can allow for students to communicate and think about the world in a unique way A little girl looks at the ocean and wonders about the other side Then nothing happens Pat the Bunny hasof a story than this A little girl looks at the ocean and wonders about the other side Then nothing happens Pat the Bunny hasof a story than this I think as a children s book goes, there arewith better illustrations The book is ok, but it isn t very much to it She sees the ocean, wonders what is on the other side and that is it Not much Reading It s not a unique thing to love Taro Gomi but his books have been the number one literary gift of having a baby and spending so much time at the children s library This book is wonderful, short enough for one year olds but also contemplative and interesting enough for adults who have to read it over and over again I think it s a perfect book for a school library as well Absolutely cannot get enough of this author The book Over the Ocean, was written and illustrated by Taro Gomi This story was originally published in Japan If you ve stood on a beach once in your life, then like most people, you have wondered what lies on the other side of the ocean This story is about just that, a little girl standing on a beach looking over the ocean She wonders what there could be in the ginormous ocean in front of her Could there even be someone not so different from herself looking back at her After reading th The book Over the Ocean, was written and illustrated by Taro Gomi This story was originally published in Japan If you ve stood on a beach once in your

I ve never been a beach person since the sun and I have never gotten along, but as for the ocean, I can t get enough of it I love finding some shade, lying in a hammock, and just staring off into the distance I basically become entranced by it, as I listen to the waves and forget about everything that s on my mind As I let my mind drift, I start to think like the little girl in the story I wonder how far away I am from other countries I ll think about what s happening on the beaches over there Could there be someone else on that beach doing the same thing that I m doing right now, and thinking up the same meaningless questions Lovely book This is one of my favorites so far by Taro Gomi The concept is nicely dually dreamlike and practical, and a lot of the color schemes are pretty inventive especially the ice country Lovely book This is one of my favorites so far by Taro Gomi The concept is nicely dually dreamlike and practical, and a lot of the color schemes are pretty inventive especially the ice country Haven t we all wondered what lies on the other side of the ocean If we could stretch ourselves exactly across and see exactly what and who is directly across from us This book scratches that imaginary itch and has beautiful artwork to match. A young girl gazes out to where the water meets the sky and wonders what lies beyond the waves Boats filled with toys Skyscrapers filled with people Houses filled with families Or, maybe, over the ocean stands someone not so different from the girl herself, returning her gaze A child stands looking out at the ocean and wonders what is on the other side Cities Towns Strange animals Maybe another child standing looking this way and wondering what s on this side
