Every day, we use plastic products. And where does these items go when we are done with them? Too many end up in the ocean. Enter artist Angela Haseltine Pozzi, the founder of Washed Ashore. With the help of volunteers, she collects ocean trash and uses it to construct sculptures of ocean wildlife. The sculptures go on display to educate people about the effects of trash in our oceans. Author and photographer Kelly Crull highlights this phenomenal work, featuring fourteen sculptures. Each sculpture is accompanied by information about the animal as well as tips for how to reduce your plastic use.

“Scavenger Hunt,” with plastic collecting tips. “Building the Sculptures.” Suggestions to build your own sculpture. “Where Do Plastic Bottles Go?” Glossary. Suggested resources. Full-color photographs.

Praise & Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-5-Vibrant, crisp photographs of 14 sea creatures sculpted from recycled plastic are only the beginning of this engaging book. The sculptures were created to travel around the country to educate people about the multiple threats posed by our plastic trash. Each spread includes fascinating facts about an animal along with common sense actions that even kids can take to reduce the pollution of our oceans. A seek-and-find feature adds an extra layer of engagement while also highlighting just how many ways we incorporate plastic into our lives. Back matter includes instructions on how to organize a plastic scavenger hunt, an explanation of how the sculptures in the book were made, and a flowchart that lays out the consequences of drinking tap water vs. water from a plastic bottle. VERDICT A visually and factually compelling call to environmental action that will speak to children.-Jan Aldrich Solow
