Esteem for our Oceans

Ocean: A Photicular BookWhile World Ocean Day was created in 1992 at the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit it only received its official designation by the United Nations in late 2008.

More and more countries celebrate World Ocean Day with special events.  It’s a sign that we take seriously the responsibility of protecting the oceans.

Getting the designation is certainly a sign of esteem in an official way.

Even for people who don’t live along the coast the health of world’s oceans is important.  Undoubtedly to a considerable extent the oceans affect the climate of the whole world.

When we show and give our esteem toward nature that always and clearly include the oceans. By giving esteem toward our oceans we also are giving a sign to our children making them interested in our oceans. The following book is highly recommended for children of the age of 8 to 11 years showcasing an innovative lenticular technology.

A New York Times bestseller, Ocean is like being on a dive. Using Photicular technology, each image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid visual experience. Open the book, and the reader is swept into the magic of an underwater world, face-to-face with a floating Yellow-Banded Sweetlips; with a glow-in-the-dark Deep-Sea Anglerfish; with a Sea Horse swaying in balletic motion; with a Sand Tiger Shark gliding along the ocean floor, its gaze haunting, its hook-toothed mouth gulping open and closed. The text by Carol Kaufmann enchants with its descriptions of coral reefs; a journey on Alvin, the 17-ton submersible; and a meditation on our oceans. Then, for each creature, she writes a lively and informative essay, along with vital statistics—size, habitat, range, diet, and more.

Reader reviews

This book is absolutely AMAZING! As you turn the pages the pictures “come to life” as if you are watching a short video! I was simply amazed when I looked through it! Not only would I recommend these as a gift, I would suggest having them be delivered to you first so you can enjoy them before you give them away!

This is such a fun book! I purchased it to give to my 7 year old niece and when she opened it up and began turning the pages she was so excited! She loved that she could make the animals move faster or slower by how she turned the pages. Just enough information provided on each animal presented to briefly satisfy then ultimately send a person on to more in-depth sources. It’s truly a visual treat.

These Photicular Books are Amazing! I love them and so does my Toddler. Rich in Color and Lifelike. Very Captivating! Perfect for any age 0 -100! 🙂
