From the book: .. the pull of the ocean and its everchanging tides are home to an exotic cast of characters, so when daytime fish hide, the nightshift begins:

“As I lay my head to sleep,
The colour blue began to seep,
Inside my mind, inside my soul,
Feeling weightless, lost control.”

“The sun slowly rises and so must I
My coral sea dream all gone with a sigh
A world so ancient, a world so rare
Its future so fragile without love and care.”

This bound hardcover book of 32 pages is aimed for pre-school to primary school children, aged 2 to 9 years – and all ages. The story of Coral Sea Dreaming is told in glorious silk paintings with easy to understand text in poetic style. It includes 6 extra pages of educational fact-files and information about coral reefs and the creatures that live there.

Bonus Extra Videos on The Coral Sea Dreaming Ocean Channel complete the package. Coming out very soon!
