“Altogether, this book is a fun and educational book introducing children to the wonderful world of the ocean. It also teaches some facts about sea creatures. And it provides a wonderful example of social learning by teaching children they can rely on themselves to solve some problems. I highly recommend this book for ages 3-6, especially as an introduction to an ocean unit. The authors say that Nellie The Narwhal is the first in a series and I look forward to future books from these two talented authors.”
Eve Panzer, Barefoot Librarian
“Teachers will love how this underwater adventure will encourage reading and introduce children to the many animals that live deep in the ocean. I think every home, school, and public library should have this book on the shelf to help make reading fun and to enable children to go on an underwater adventure without leaving home.”
Barbara Fanson for Readers' Favourite
“The questions get young readers thinking and interacting with the story and characters. The message shows that even though we may not look the same on the outside, we all have much in common. As this is Nellie's first appearance in the literary world, I can certainly say that I am looking forward to seeing more of her in the future.”
Shannon Winings for Readers’ Favourite
“The enjoyable book includes “Nellie’s Ocean Trivia,” offering five multiple-choice questions relevant to the story, such as “What kind of animal is a turtle?”
A lively and approachable animal tale about creative solutions and friendship.
