Johanna Hurmerinta loves underwater photography and this earth. Her love for nature and photography shines through in her new children’s book, The Adventures of the Picassofish. Johanna punctuates her children’s story with pictures of many different types of fish that live in the Red Sea. Her style of writing is entertaining for children while at the same time being very informative. Parents can use this book to teach their children about the importance of taking care of the earth. Only when we teach our next generation to conserve the planet will they sustain nature for the following generations. This book also touches on some social issues, including bullying. Making friends with those who are different is also addressed. Read this book with your children and share the joy of taking care of this planet while learning the remarkable stories of different types of fish.
