I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Aqua Paws is a cat who loves the water. That makes him unique from the start since most cats hate water. He’s not unique when it comes to being afraid of crabs, though. They can pinch! He and his friend, Purple Beak, go searching for treasure which they find, but they also find trash! In fact, Aqua Paws gets stuck in some plastic and guess who saves him?
This is a wonderful book to read to children. It has an interesting story that teaches about not judging those different from you, and also teaching the dangers of ocean pollution. It’s heartbreaking knowing how much of our trash ends up killing ocean life.
The illustrations are amazing! They’re detailed with vibrant colors.
At the end, there are ways to help Aqua Paws preserve the ocean and how to make your own crab using a toilet paper roll. This is definitely a book that belongs in a child’s library. I’ve already read it to my grandson a couple of times.
Patricia writes stories about the ocean, cats, and friendship. With beautiful illustrations and heartfelt characters, she aims to entertain and inspire readers to feel brave, adventurous, and appreciate the environment. Patricia’s memorable characters include Aqua Paws and Purple Beak with many more on the horizon. Her fiction picture book, AQUA PAWS, has subtle hints of pollution in our oceans and children can help by collecting the harmful trash. Patricia lives in Texas with her husband. She treasures time with her two grown daughters and her grand babies Tate (Tater-Tot) and Pierce. Her love of animals, the beach and the environment is undeniable.
