New 2nd edition of All Fish Faces is a joy for fish fans!

Published

on

The new 2nd edition of Tam Warner Minton’s ‘picture book for all ages’ – All Fish Faces – is now available.

The 2nd edition includes new photos, new facts, and has a new look and format. Tam’s passion for writing the book, and publishing a 2nd edition, is educating kids about ocean ecology and sea life.

What’s more, 10% of profits will go to the Marine Megafauna Foundation to continue their scientific research to protect our oceans and ocean giants.

Tam says:

“Like all divers, the state of the ocean is of the utmost importance to me, and my hope is that introducing kids and their families to our ocean friends will create a generation of excited, enthusiastic, and caring ocean lovers! Who knows? Maybe it will encourage future scientists and conservationists. Seeing and getting to know, and love, our fishy friends is a great way to encourage kids to save the ocean for future generations.”

All Fish Faces includes ocean and marine life education and tips on how kids (and everyone they know) can help save our ocean friends.

Zack Rago, the “coral nerd” from the documentary Chasing Coral says: All Fish Faces is a wonderful tool for kids to explore the magic of reef fishes. The weird and wild facts alongside the frequently hilarious photography make it a joy to read at any age. A must-have for elementary classrooms!”

In addition to facts about fish versus mammals, each tropical reef fish species represented in All Fish Faces shows the species in the different oceans of the world. Kids respond with excitement to the many colors and differences in the fish. Here are a couple of excerpts from the book:

Ebook, hardback and paperback versions of All Fish Faces are now available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and good book stores. Copies are also available via Tam’s author email – tam@tamwarnerminton.com – at $16.99 for the paperback, and $27.99 for the hardcover.

Special Offer for Scubaverse readers:

Quote ‘Scubaverse’ for a special rate of $14.00 for the paperback signed, and $25 for the hardcover signed, excluding shipping.
