Maya in the Rubbish Sea Reader Reviews

Amanda O'Dwyer

A wonderful book.

Wonderful.

Firstly the illustrations: Very child-friendly, easy to access, lovely colour and I particularly like the way that the plastic is quietly there in the background in each scene. Very interactive.

The story itself: I found the writing perfect for children. Simple, short sentences, plenty of chances for comprehension and discussion. It made me very sad reading this. I am now 45 and have been doing my best to recycle and protect the local environment etc since I was in my early teens and had a passionate teacher. I am saddened that in all this time nothing has changed and has indeed got worse.

I hope this book, as well as teaching children about how we can help our oceans and our planet as a whole, will also remind adults that we need to do something. A wonderful book.

This is an excellent little story to help younger children understand Climate and Environmental changes.

This is an excellent little story to help younger children understand Climate and Environmental changes. The drawings are lovely, and by engaging with the reader it helps them to understand how and why these things happen. A nice story just to read, but also one on another level to make them think.

Anything which gets children involved in caring for our planet is doing a good job and I'd recommend it for that reason.

I like the idea of this book as it's a good starting point for discussing environmental and conservation concerns with children. The illustrations are great too. I'm not sure which age range the book is aimed at. I think it's a bit lightweight for older children but not simple enough for younger ones. And I'd like to know why Maya is magic when her family appear to be regular humans. However, anything which gets children involved in caring for our planet is doing a good job and I'd recommend it for that reason.
