Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Set in a small fishing village in Indonesia, Wayan and the Turtle King is a beautifully illustrated educational book about the global problem of plastic in the ocean, the impact that it has, and what we can do help. I simply adored this book, the authors passion for the ocean and desire to educate other flows through every page. At the end of the book there are a number of creative interactive educational activities including a 'plastic diary' to help highlight how much plastic we use each week and an opportunity for children to draw how they as individuals can reduce their use of plastics. Thought provoking. This book will make a difference to the health of our oceans.
