Joel Harper’s All The Way To The Ocean getting animated!

Joel Harper’s book All the Way to the Ocean is getting animated! Let’s help entertain & educate kids on saving the oceans.

All The Way To The Ocean is a delightful read that teaches the young how they can participate in keeping our oceans and their inhabitants clean and blue-green. Beautifully illustrated it is an inspiring book that’s also printed using recycled paper and soy inks. A great gift to begin teaching children that they can make a difference for the environment.

All water drains to the Bay/Ocean…don’t polute because everything drains to where we swim and enjoy the ocean.
