I also read Jan Peck's book Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea to my reception class while on placement. The book tells the story of a little boy who swims under the sea and meets different sea creatures. It has a regular rhyming pattern throughout the book, a perfect book to read aloud to a class. I feel that this book was perfect for reception and maybe even a younger age group. It would open the children's eyes to the world around them. I liked the end of the story when we realise that the child was only "swimming" in his own bath tub. I believe that a lot of children will be able to think of a time which they went on an adventure in their own surroundings. This may captivate the children's imagination just like Jill Murphy's Whatever Next!
