for Atlantic by G. Brian Karas
The Atlantic Ocean speaks in first-person voice in the lyrical text of a book that invites children to think about the ocean in myriad ways, even to embody it. “I begin where the land runs out at the end of yards and streets and hills…I rub shoulders with North America and bump into Africa…The moon so far out in space pulls at me and then lets go…Artists paint pictures of me with cerulean, cobalt and ultramarine.” G. Brian Karas describes the ways that the Atlantic Ocean occupies the geography of earth, map and imagination, illustrating his words with a multitude of blue and greens in water-inspired artwork rendered in gouache, acrylic and pencil. (Ages 6-10)
