Each page of this educational children's book contains a beautiful aquatic-themed art piece created by one of 35 art teachers from all over the world who have all chosen a famous artist to emulate. A great tool for intercurricular teaching, this book combines art history, marine biology, and poetry that is informative and entertaining. Also included are icons placed under each picture to indicate whether the creature is thriving, threatened, endangered, critically endangered, or extinct. The art and poetry will educate children about the rich traditions of art history as well as inspire kids to learn more about the famous artists that are honored on every page.
