The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau by Dan Yaccarino
Today would have been Jacques Cousteau's 100th Birthday. It is appropriate that we celebrate a man who did so much for the world's oceans. All the turmoil in the gulf reminds us that there have always been people who so cared about our waters that they did anything to educate and preserve them.
The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau by Dan Yaccarino is a wonderful picture book that details this incredible man's life. It is a great way to teach children about why it is important to be environmentally conscience. I love Dan Yaccarino he is such a versatile artist and this is a great book to showcase is works. Even though this is a picture book it is a fantastic book for all ages to enjoy and learn from.
