I came across a wonderful book by Laura Knight, the founder of The Friendly Planet Club who had just published her first book called ‘Spot: A Sea Pup’s Survival Guide‘ which can be bought from Amazon.
The art of storytelling has always been Laura’s passion, hoping to inspire children to ‘be your best’ through heroic and unforgettable characters. She spent 15+ years as an accomplished Art Director in the toy industry, managing many popular children’s brands…yet, her fascination and appreciation for our planet was reignited after a visit to a Marine Mammal Rescue Center, where she witnessed the rehabilitation of a sea lion that was injured by ocean pollution.
The book is about a seal pup who finds the seas being affected by human activities. The main story is told with rhyming words. It includes a charming main character with an important lesson in ecology. Book features vibrant, playful illustrations, ocean photography & facts.
I find that this is a really wonderful book to teach about pollution in the seas and why we must protect the oceans for our future generations by focusing on education. Check out Laura’s amazing work at Friendly Planet Club!
