This is one of my all time favorite books. As an avid surfer and psychotherapist I use this book where my passions meet, educating children about the importance of protecting our environment and working together to enjoy life!
Moki demonstrates the classic progression from ignorance to activist that many encounter when faced head on with environmental pollution. He upsets himself about others trashing his beach, thinks "Somebody's got to do something", then realizes that the "somebody" is himself.
If you love the beach or our planet and want to share that passion with a child, then this book will serve you well. I have written a curriculum around this book for use with Fourth grade students. You can learn more by searching for the Surfrider Foundation, Emerald Coast Chapter.

I got this book for my son who loves Moki the Gecko, but he read it and said it was mostly about keeping beaches clean, and not so much about Moki. He was disappointed in the book, but said he wanted to keep the book anyway, just to complete his collection of Moki books. Had I read the book before ordering, I probably wouldn't of bought it. Granted we should keep the earth clean, but everywhere you go, they shove it in your face. Let kids enjoy a book without being hounded on keeping something clean!

Great way to make children aware of protecting the environment. This is one of my go-to Baby Shower gifts.
