Colorful Underwater Photos
Have a child who loves looking at tropical fish? Yep, me too!
In fact, our pediatrician’s office had a massive fish tank filled with bright, colorful fish that seemed to memorize my boys every time we visited the doctor.
Let me tell you, this picture book will be a total delight to all fellow fish lovers!
It will filled with loads of colorful, underwater photos of tropical fish found in the ocean!
An Excellent Ocean Unit Study Resource
Are you an educator preparing an ocean themed unit study? Or, more specifically, a marine life unit study? This book is definitely for you (and your children/students)!
Not only is it filled with colorful, real-life photos of fish found throughout the ocean, it includes a vast amount of educational information about the fish.
Plus, there are lots of fun fish facts as well! And, I’m not talking about basic information here!
For example, did you know that a baby eel is called an elver? I didn’t…
Did you know that in 1996 Mercedes-Benz built a concept car based on the baby Yellow Boxfish? Nope, I didn’t know that either!
So, you can see that not only does author/photographer Tam Minton Warner engage the kids with the mind-blowing pictures of fish, but she presents them with fun facts about the photographed fish as well.
And, she doesn’t stop there! She incorporates math and geography too! The readers are encouraged to use a map to locate the many different places that she photographed the fish. Math, specifically measurement, is incorporated by urging the reader to compare their height to the length of pufferfish.
The More Fish Faces book is definitely a must have for all ocean themed unit studies!
Saving the Ocean
If you are interested in showing your children/students the importance of preserving sea life, Minton directly addresses ways in which a “small person can make a big difference.”
She begins by explaining how incredibly valuable the ocean and its plants and animals are to human life…from the air we breathe to the food we eat and the medicines used to treat diseases!
Did you know that the ocean produces 70% more goods and services than land products? I didn’t know that one either! (I love it when I am able to learn right alongside my children!)
Minton goes on to encourage readers to do their part in preserving the ocean by reusing grocery bags, not using single-use plastics, drinking from refillable water bottles, recycling, and more!
In fact, Minton gives 10% of the profits from her book sales to various ocean conservation foundations! (Now, that’s putting your money where your mouth is!)
