A Story of Cleaning Up the Ocean

A young girl loves the tide pools that she sees on her runs by the oceans, 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. Resources for further learning and a glossary are included.

An Amazon reader comment:

- Engaging illustrations and content will make readers think.
- The book functions on two levels. First, a story of Violet thinking through the alarming consequences of trash making its way to the ocean. She is inspired by people she encounters.
- On a second level, it includes facts and about ocean trash and describes amazing projects and textbook definitions for for readers to feel hopeful -- and helpful -- about changing the way they live and about everyone doing their part to save the planet.
