"A simple, relevant, and informative read that gives kids a positive outlook on what can be done to reduce our impact on the ocean." — Taylor Lane, Creator of the Cigarette Surfboard
A young girl loves the tide pools that she sees on her runs by the ocean, but one day notices garbage amongst the colorful creatures she finds there. Along the beach she meets conservationists cleaning up the beach who educate her about the dangers that trash pose to ocean life. She decides to help also.
Saving the Sea for the Purple and Green is a perfect way to introduce children to the importance of caring for our environment, especially the ocean. In this story, we follow Violet as she learns about the dangers of plastic pollution to the ocean, environment, and what she can do to mitigate further pollution. I enjoyed the blend of fictional tale with scientific evidence, it made for an interesting and engaging story. It also motivated me to do more to reduce my use of plastics.
The book is gorgeous! The illustrations bring the book to life and the colors drew me in. I highly recommend this book to introduce children to the importance of protecting our environment.
