Not just a coloring book! Finding the True Stars of the Ocean is a great educational tool for students (grades 2-5) and teachers alike.
If your child was inspired to become a marine biologist or learn more about marine ecosystems after watching one of the blockbuster animated movies, like Finding Dory, then Finding the True Stars of the Ocean is for them. Inside this educational coloring book, your child will learn about the coral reef and kelp forest ecosystems and the balance that exists between the species that live there.
They will learn about the real life version of characters from the big screen including: Clownfish, Regal Blue Tangs, Porcupinefish, Butterflyfish, Damselfish, Cleaner Wrasses, Rockfish, Octopuses, Hammerhead Sharks, Whale Sharks, Sea Turtles, Spotted Rays, Sea Lions, Sea Otters and more. Each colorable illustration is accompanied by a one-page fact sheet about the species. Children will learn about species feeding habits, coloration, anatomy, body design, and their role in the underwater ecosystem.
Important ecological principals covered include: symbiosis, the effects of collecting fish for the aquarium trade, reef etiquette and conservation. Including these topics is intended to help children make better decisions about the world we live in.
