Review: 'Let's Meet a Marine Educator!' by Tasha Jacobson

Let's Meet a Marine Educator! by Tasha Jacobson, 2009, Windward Publishing, $11.58, softbound, 36 pages. Category/Genre: reference. Cover: good. Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble. 

This book is intended to help kids decide if they want to become a marine educator for a living. It starts off with explaining what a marine educator is, and talks about where a marine educator works. 

The focal point of the book is the introduction of Tammy Rach, a marine educator herself. Through this book, the reader learns that marine educators often organise learning events, such as summer camps, and that they will visit schools or put on workshops. 

There are lots of photographs of marine educators and marine life, as well as information about marine life. There's also a section on conservation. The book closes with tips on what to do if you are interested in a marine education career. 

Several organisations and websites are included, as well as a bibliography. 

For ages 10-15.
