Det djupa blå

The Deep Blue

Emily Joof

Illustrated by

Matilda Ruta

A beautiful and moving picture book about overcoming the fear of water and discovering the magic of the ocean. About being at the pool and overcoming your fear with a parent safely by your side, and eventually daring to take a little jump off the edge;

The first time I saw the water I shivered. It was so big and so blue! The second time was in the summer, by a quiet little lake. Mysterious bubbles on the surface here and there, but I dipped a toe in, then two. Maybe it wasn’t so scary after all?
