Ocean Soup

A Recipe for You, Me, and a Cleaner Sea

From the shore, the ocean looks like clear, sparkling blue but look closely at a small scoop and you'll find the ocean looks more like soup! Our oceans are filled with plastics, from water bottles and take-out containers to the teeny tiny plastic particles you need a microscope to see. But who exactly cooked up this stinky soup? And, more importantly, what is the recipe for getting (and keeping) our oceans clean? This bouncing, rhyming story pulls no punches about how we ended up in this sticky mess but also offers hope and help for cleaning up this ocean soup.

Kirkus Reviews - Ocean Soup

“A lighthearted approach to a sobering truth.”

Author: Meeg Pincus

Meeg Pincus is a children’s author, humane educator, and speaker who loves celebrating and telling stories about real "solutionaries" who help people, animals, and the planet. She is a lifelong writer and has been a newspaper reporter, book editor, and essayist--but writing children's books is her favorite. It was as a newspaper reporter over 20 years ago that Meeg had the honor of meeting Miep Gies in person. She lives in San Diego, California.
