Mister Seahorse is a warm and charming story about a Daddy Seahorse who looks after Mrs's Seahorses eggs until they are ready to hatch and then gives birth to them! As he drifts through the sea, he meets all sorts of other male fish who also look after their young until they hatch. This is a wonderfully positive tale for fathers everywhere.
I quite LOVED the odd fish father's role subject of the book. It's so cool to teach kids things they wouldn't normally be exposed to in such a surprising and not obviously educational way. It makes it such a pleasure to learn then learning becomes natural!! WE NEED MORE BOOKS LIKE THIS! Totally recommend for home libraries!!
I didn’t even have to draw a parallel to how our daddies help mummy take care of us... they volunteered that all on their own!
Anyway, for our art we drew our Seahorse on painted paper and cut him out. The children created Watercolour backgrounds in the style of Eric Carle so they used light wavy lines to mimic the ocean currents. They stuck Mr. Seahorse down and decorated him as well.
Happt Father’s Day!
