This story takes place in the Indian Ocean. A seahorse named Spike has just become pregnant and is excited to bring new babies into the world. When he shares his excitement with the other ocean animals, he finds they don’t share his happiness. Instead they think him strange and wrong. Teasing him and saying boys aren’t supposed to give birth. Spike is not discouraged though and encourages the others to journey across the world and discover for themselves that many different creatures exist in the vast ocean.

This story subtly incorporates factual information about seahorses while also teaching a valuable lesson of acceptance and embracing our differences. To then look beyond those differences and find the common ground we all share. Your child will be captivated by the vivid illustrations made from clay and felt within a diorama setting.
