Rachel Carson, a marine biologist, was the world’s first “environmentalist.” In her book, The Silent Spring, she first warned people of this planet that the pesticides were doing irreparable damage to the eco-system. Today, everyone has heard of “the environment” and pollution and toxic waste. Our youngest generation needs to know how they can participate in saving their present and future home. This book celebrates the unique ocean and the importance of conserving ocean life, keeping ocean waters clean and wholesome and protecting ocean life from growing extinct. The DVD, Cartoon Sea, echoes “the importance of keeping oceans free from pollution” while it is a “bright, colorful look at all kinds of sea life.” This book is one of a series that emphasizes the environment and the value of preserving it by depicting real people who provide inspirational role models.
