Be kind to the ocean; it connects us all.

We're all connected to the ocean, and the ocean to us. The ocean provides half the oxygen we breathe; it feeds us, creates our weather and provides us with water. But we haven't been as kind to the ocean in return. The problems are many: pollution, overfishing, rising seas and acid waters. What can be done? Don't despair; take action. Dive In! explores our intimate connection with the ocean and provides every reader with an achievable set of actions that can help improve ocean health for our sake and the sake of the millions of marine plants and animals that share the planet with us. Filled with colorful photos and positive stories, Dive In! is as informative as it is inspirational.

Ann Eriksson lives on Thetis Island, British Columbia, with her husband in a waterfront house surrounded by ocean and trees and a lot of amazing and beautiful wildlife. When she's not writing, working in biology or helping protect the environment, she's out exploring the ocean and beaches by foot, kayak and sailboat.

"A lively, up-to-date and thought-provoking book that should readily engage young readers and encourage them to consider their role in ocean preservation, for its health and their own. A timely read for anyone! Highly Recommended. " - CM Magazine

"Concise and still thorough, this is a solid addition to a wide-ranging and ecologically conscious series. " - Kirkus Reviews

"An empowering philosophy is found in Dive In!…Clearly written chapters explain why we should not take oceans for granted, and lots of relatable and memorable examples are provided…For global citizens in training, Eriksson's mantra—'Everything is connected to everything else'—is a significant and heartening concept to ponder." - Quill & Quire

"A passionate plea for young readers to start enjoying, protecting, and preserving our oceans…The brief chapters are divided into manageable subsections, and full-color photos and sidebars appear on every page. References are provided for student researchers, and there's sufficient visual appeal to entice browsers. International in scope, this is a hopeful and appealing call to action." - Booklist

"This book is relevant to all…has all the prerequisites of a good information book: well researched, well organized, timely, and appropriate for intended audience. The text is engaging, the layout appealing supplemented with relevant photographs and side bars…highly recommended for both school and public libraries." - Resource Links
