how you & your school can get involved in helping turtles like tuamor
Tuamor the turtle is the tale of how one tiny turtle in the Pacific Ocean takes on the might of the plastic peril. He's helped by two children, Abbie and her younger brother Charlie. But is it too late for Tuamor, who dreams of one day having youngsters of his own? Or does his message in a bottle turn the tide?
Written by Jo Earlam, illustrated by Mark Hannon and published by Brilliant Autobiographies, Tuamor the Turtle highlights the problem of plastic pollution in a way that can be easily understood by young children, whether reading alone or with an adult.
The book is being used by a number of schools in reading groups and as part of the wider curriculum. Jo and Mark have taken part in Tuamor the Turtle events at primary schools and are keen to visit as many schools as possible.
The book has a RRP of £5.99, ISBN number 978-0-9931883-1-2. You can order it here or through Amazon.
The great news is that Tuamor has become good friends with the UK's leading marine charity, the Marine Conservation Society, who'll benefit from each book sold - visit the charity page for details.
