ABOUT OUR FAVORITE EDUCATOR (Also Author & Illustrator's Mom!)

> Elementary school teacher with over 30 years experience​

> Masters in multicultural education

​> Best Trip:  Science Expedition to Antarctica

> Favorite Quote:  

"Children are one third of our population and all of our future." 

This book has a simple message: "Be kind to the planet. Be kind to each other."  It follows the story of a baby sea lion who gets tangled in trash and rescued by humans.

The back of the book includes a very basic teacher/parent guide, to encourage conversations with children about a few themes:  helping each other, recycling, and protecting our oceans and marine life.​
