The non-profit Save Our Seas Foundation launched a first of its kind childrens’ book series featuring high-definition photos of marine life combined with original illustrations. The book series is just the first step in what will become a global campaign to educate and inspire young people to protect the world’s oceans. The SOSF plans to expand the series to publish future books in different formats, targeting different age groups.
The first two books of the series hit bookstores nationwide this month. “The Devil Fish” and “The Great White Red Alert” are aimed at children ages 8 to 12 years old.
“We wanted to take the fun of book series’ like Nancy Drew, the mystery of the ocean from greats like Jacques Cousteau, mix in animation and real-life like “The Incredible Mr. Limpet” and “Roger Rabbit” and combine all those elements to get today’s gadget-savvy kids excited and inspired about preserving the ocean,” said Jon Rosenberg in a press release. Rosenberg’s company Jokar Productions LLC is producing the book series.
Before his death in 1997 Jacques Cousteau told Time Magazine, “The oceans are in danger of dying … In the past, the sea renewed itself. It was a continuous cycle. But this cycle is being upset … some scientists think it’s too late. I don’t think so.”
Neither does Rosenberg.
“We want to promote environmental responsibility to children. They are the future of this planet.”
