Look out at the ocean as far as you can see. There’s a magical world right below the waves! Twisted Orca, a family friendly conservation site, wants every child to stare into the ocean in awe of the amazing world before them!
Twisted Orca books deliver positive messages about sea animals through what The Bay Magazine calls “adorably lovable characters”.
While hard copies of the books are available at retailers such as Walmart, Amazon and Barnes & Noble, author Keri Newman wants to be sure the books are accessible to children everywhere.
“One day a teacher reached out to me and told me how much her class loved our books, and how she had given her classroom copy to a little girl whose family couldn’t afford books. I wanted to make sure that regardless of income, children all over the world could learn about saving the ocean”.
Three of the most popular books are now available to download as part of free educational kits on Twisted Orca’s website. The kits also include free themed coloring pages, conservation pledges and Ocean Hero Certificates that kids can sign and save.
For those who wish to purchase items, hard copies of all the books, as well as exclusive ocean inspired art and gifts for the whole family can be found at Twistedorca.com. For teachers, groups, or families on a limited budget, the free book kits are fun and available to all!
Keri Newman, founder of Twisted Orca, is a Marine Naturalist and whale enthusiast from Rhode Island. She is currently involved in a project with the World Cetacean Alliance in the United Kingdom to publish a Worldwide Guide for Responsible Whale Watching. Wholesale copies of Twisted Orca books are available for resale through Stillwater Books.
Responsible journalism is hard work!
It is also expensive!
