COMMOTION IN THE OCEAN
This excellent book helps adults introduce children to some of the environmental issues that face us today in an age-appropriate way. Playful illustrations of a variety of sea creatures teach children ways humans can help save our ocean friends.
Word spreads across the ocean about a meeting to hatch a plan of defense against fishing trawlers (aka “the monsters”). Brightly colored crabs and lobsters, sea snails, polka-dotted fish, and whales and dolphins rally together and appeal—with a hug and a kiss—to humans to make the right choices when they shop.
The tale concludes with a sweet Sea Shepherd shanty about the brave crews who sailed the seas to protect whales, dolphins, and fish in need. We’re all invited to join these kind individuals and help keep our ocean clean and full of fish.
