Memoirs of a Goldfish by Devin Scillian- A bit on the long side so it's best for pre-school age kids. Funny book narrated by a goldfish who's fishbowl is getting more crowded as the owners add new fish and toys.

What the Sea Saw by Stephanie St. Pierre - Wonderful huge realistic illustrations. A gentle story full of amazing imagery.

Old Shell, New Shell by Helen Ward- A really special story about a hermit crab in the ocean who has grown too big for his old shell. Wonderful illustrations of coral reef fish and flora are a great springboard for you to introduce some non-fiction books about coral reefs from the collection.

Three by the Sea by Mini Grey- A pretty long book for storytime, but worth trying it out. Will be better suited for the 4-7 age group.
