Ocean Devotion by Elizabeth Cummings — a review – #readilearn

Earlier this month on 8 June, we celebrated World Oceans Day, so I was delighted to be invited to participate in the Books on Tour promotion of the new book Ocean Devotion written by Elizabeth Mary Cummings and illustrated by Melissa Salvarani.

World Oceans Day is a day for celebrating, protecting and conserving the world’s oceans. ‘The purpose of the Day is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world’s oceans.’

The theme for 2021 is One Ocean, One Climate, One Future — Together’

The book Ocean Devotion helps to spread that message in an empowering story which urges us to take action to care for the ocean and life in and beneath its waves.

The message begins with the dedications:

“Our oceans are precious. Let us join together to build a cleaner, greener future for all. With love and thanks to you Dad for your example.” E.C.

“In a few years we have created a sixth continent made of plastic, a practically indestructible material. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle are the three magic words that can change the world.” M.S.

      It is a creative approach, Patricia. Sometimes I wonder how we let our world get into such a state. I guess it was through ignorance. We didn’t know. I don’t think it was that any of us didn’t care. We just didn’t know what effects our actions would have. Until they did.

    I love the title and any book with an environmental message. Congrats to Elizabeth. Thanks to you, Norah, for bringing this review, or I would not have known about this book.

      Thank you, Karen. Its message is similar to yours in Great Barrier Reef Rescue. They are written for different audiences though.
