Have you ever thought about everything the ocean does for you? It changes the weather, creates oxygen, provides food, and is a great place to have fun, too! So why is the ocean such a big deal? Because we couldn't live without it!
This funny and factual picture book from Heart and Brain creator Nick Seluk explains the science behind the ocean: its plant and animal life, its contribution to the world, and what we can do every day to protect it. Humans wouldn't be able to survive without a healthy ocean. That's kind of a big deal.
Each spread features bite-sized text and comic-style art with sidebars sprinkled throughout. Anthropomorphized marine animals help readers learn through funny jokes and comic panels. Funny, smart, and accessible, The Ocean Is Kind of a Big Deal is a must-have!
