BOOK: Ducks Overboard
By Markus Motum
Eco facts come to light as a plastic duck narrates this beautifully illustrated true story of thousands of bath toys that were lost at sea and swept to the four corners of the Pacific.
If a shipping container filled with 28,000 plastic ducks spilled into the Pacific Ocean, where would all those ducks go? Inspired by a real incident, this captivating and innovative look at the pollution crisis in our oceans follows one of the ducks as it is washed away on ocean currents, encountering plastic-endangered whales and sea turtles, and passing through the giant floating island of marine debris known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
From the author-illustrator of the acclaimed Curiosity: The Story of a Mars Rover comes a highly accessible and graphically stylish picture book with an ultimately hopeful message about environmental issues and the state of our oceans. An end map documents the widely scattered journey of the real-life plastic ducks, showing where they have been found, as well as facts about the ways plastic is affecting various parts of the world.
BOOK: The Eco-heroes Watch Water
By Colette Barr. Illustrated by Leona Collins
An amazing book to read with your little one, especially since it is based in the Middle East and has very relatable references for the kids growing up here.
The story’s hero is Rudi from South Africa who understands why water conservation is so important, having seen it firsthand in his home country. The book highlights water scarcity in the Middle East and why fashion and diet have such an impact on our water footprint. There are desert camping adventures and football antics in the garden, but the highlight is the children modelling ethical outfits at the Eco-Fashion Festival.
