Alba and the Ocean Cleanup

By Lara Hawthorne
Picture Book

Alba and the Ocean Cleanup is a delightful picture book! It’s about a fish named Alba and how her world changes when plastic takes over her home. Kaia, a very responsible girl in the nearby town, leads an ocean cleanup to help save Alba’s home and bring back her fish friends. The book includes very beautiful and colorful illustrations. It has a wonderful section near the end that teaches kids about marine life and how to be more friendly to the ocean. This is a great book to teach kids about sustainability and being environmentally friendly.
