We Are the Ocean helps children develop a personal connection to the water. The author eloquently describes the importance of the ocean and its role in sustaining all life on Earth. Children, along with their doggie companions, discover the answer to the question, What is the ocean? Captivating illustrations show the continuous cycle of water on Earth and teach youngsters that water is in the cells of all living plants and animals, including the cells of their own bodies. Readers will be surprised to discover water was even once in the bodies of dinosaurs! When children learn about their connection to the ocean, they are more motivated to appreciate and take care of it as they grow older. Charming pictures by British artist Sarah Borg and kid-friendly language make this story a joy to read.
