The Big Green Book of the Big Blue Sea Review


In most cases, parents have two main reasons they choose a particular book to purchase for their kids: education and entertainment. The Big Green Book of the Big Blue Sea has impressive amounts of both. Written by Helaine Becker, this book presents kid-friendly, fun information while still managing to be succinct in its educational delivery. Readers, even those with short attention spans, will learn a lot just by reading the book on their own. However, parents can take the educational process to another level by helping the kids with the various hands on activities and experiments included in the book. Here are some highlights:

What’s there to read?

Learn tips for saving water and energy

Find out about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Learn about glow in the dark marine life

Discover interesting information about different aquatic creatures

What’s there to do?

Ocean Layer Cake Experiment- A colorful way to see what happens when waters of different temperatures and from different locations (rain, snow, streams and rivers) meet in the ocean.

Red Fish, Blue Fish, One Fish, Two Fish– A game which experiments with camouflage for sea animals.

Zip! Zap! Zing! – Hands on activity for making a jellyfish stinger - with adult supervision of course!

What are kids saying?

“That’s pretty cool.”

“Can we try that?”

“Oh, I didn’t know that would work!”

Adults should be available to follow up with kids on the different scientific topics, ideas and questions they may have when going through the book. In addition, as with most “green” initiatives, The Big Green Book of the Big Blue Sea does include some information about global warming.

For ages 8-12
