My Review

Many communities are outlawing plastic bags and straws, but do most consumers really know why? Nancy Carlisle’s book Saving the Seas for the Purple and Green tells a story which explains the reason behind these rules. The book tells the story of a young girl who likes being in nature. She finds some plastic in a tide pool and wonders what she can do to help stop the problem. She meets a couple of people on the beach who  explain what they are doing. Carlisle also uses nonfiction sidebars or text boxes to further explain the things mentioned in the story. 

While Carlisle’s illustrations are okay, I think the book could have been made better by hiring a professional illustrator.

Saving the Seas for the Purple and Green could find a place in a k-12 Christian school library. It would make a great addition to a sea unit, an environmental unit, or in a lesson about recycling. 

I received a complimentary copy of Saving the Seas for the Purple and Green. This is my honest review.
