Starfish, Where are you? By Barroux – OPTIONAL

Barroux Starfish, Where are you? Bonnier Publishing, 2016. $17.99 PICTURE BOOK
This large nearly wordless picture book features fish and a whale at the bottom of the sea. Gradually they are crowded out by garbage, until there is hardly room for the fish. The big whale takes charge and pushes all the garbage back into the city where it came from.
Don’t get me wrong, preventing ocean pollution is a great message. But this book fails to offer any productive tips offered to children, who have no control over ocean pollution.  Additionally thought that the part where it asks where is Starfish? Where the Jellyfish, ect.. was confusing. Then I thought it was a search game.
