This is an excellent book to help teach your family about caring for our oceans! The ideas and illustrations are fantastic to read with kids. Almost all of the suggestions can be accomplished as a family, too. Going to the beach, going on a whale-watching trip, visiting tide pools, eating healthy and sustainable seafood, etc., are all great family activities! This book makes it easy to get your whole family together and interested in saving our oceans. Also really helpful in giving extra meaning to family activities, as everything can be prefaced with an interesting suggestion from this book. It will certainly also improve your kids' self-esteem, knowing they are helping the environment. On top of that, it is a great read!

This book is truly an excellent resource for those of us that are concerned about the well-being of our environment but feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the world's enviromental issues. Here is a book that gives us all really practical, realistic, and fantastic ways to help save our oceans! I absolutely loved this book, and had so much fun doing many of the suggestions (especially going to an aquarium, eating organic foods, going surfing with my kids, and maintaining an ocean-friendly driveway). All of the suggestions are not only informative but also very easy to do and fun!

As someone who spent community service hours educating children on the environment and monitoring the actual effects on rivers by commercial industries, I'm insulted.

What idiot can't tell nitrogen for nitrites? Nitrogen HELPS soil and is 80% of our air. NITRITES cause anaerobic red algae blooms.

Is the cause farming? No, it's not processing farm runnoff. Which, by the way, organic farming crates more of.

The books recommends more never-thought-through stuff like having a wedding at a beach (beach wedding are monitored and cleaned up professionally or it is illegal to have a wedding and all that trash, depending on the beach. The beaches that are worse off due to trash, by the way, are the ones where it's illegal) to donating to charities without recommending researching where your money actually goes, to complaining to the manager if you see endangered species on the menu of a restaurant (this is an almost entirely made up myth; managers know where their food comes from, so if they serve endangered species, that's a job for the police), to boycotting tortoise shell products (another job for the police).

This book depends on the gimmick of saving the environment, uses bad logic, offers nothing but guilt trips and ideas too silly for a Captain Planet episode.

Research a good charity or organization that really gets things done and gets their own homework right too. Even if you don't give, they'll answer your questions on how you can still help the environment, now matter where you live.
