We can no longer look the other way when it comes to sustainability. An unhealthy planet means unhealthy people. This book gives the child the knowledge to ask the right questions about the food they buy. When we buy food, we have a role in making the right choices. The intention of this book is to raise awareness about how seafood is produced and making those right choices for your dinner table. In the back of the book there is a section that helps the big person in the room to understand the broader issues. Together, child and adult are encouraged to team up when shopping for food for a sustainable planet.
