The Ocean is Full of Wonderful Things
Taking a look at near coast biodiversity
The Ocean is Full of Wonderful Things is a picture book celebrating the amazing biodiversity of the Australian coast. The paintings by primary school students are supported by photos taken along south west Australian near shore marine environments. These images of our beautiful ocean provide an opportunity to gaze with wonder at what lives just under the water two or three metres from the shore. Have a look, then take your family down to the beach and see what you can find. Tread lightly.
This book links in to Australian Curriculum learning areas of Life Sciences and the Visual Arts for years 3 to 10.
This publication is also available as an ebook for AU$5.36
