What Colour is the Ocean?
Maggie Rose loves to sing! And her favourite song is “What Colour’s the Ocean Today,” a song she made up with her Grandy about how the ocean changes colour from season to season. Join Maggie Rose and Grandy through Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall and see what colour the ocean is today! Parents and children will both enjoy reading (and singing) this book over and over again. With colourful illustrations and sheet music in the back, What Colour is the Ocean? is sure to become a family favourite . . . no matter what season it is!
