Alba and the Ocean Cleanup
author/illustrator: Lara Hawthorne
Alba the fish has spent her entire life collecting precious objects that drift down to the ocean floor. From delicate shells to brightly colored coral, each year on her birthday she gathers one more precious item. But over the years, Alba notices her collection is losing its sparkle and that the world is changing. There is trash everywhere! When, on her birthday hunt, something unthinkable happens, it seems like the plastic may have changed her ocean home forever. Is it too late?
Alba and the Ocean Cleanup is a beautifully illustrated picture book about what we can do to save this important ecosystem.
