Rocked to sleep by gentle Caribbean ocean waves. Rays of sun and star light dancing on a palette of blues and greens…azure, turquoise, cerulean, ultramarine, jade, teal, and emerald. Sounds of waves lapping against each other. I don’t know what took my husband and I so long to book a cruise. We both enjoy being on the water. The hesitancy had something to do with the booking details and the unknown. We took the plunge and have fallen in love with cruising the blue. Sleep has not been so sweet.
There are a slew of ocean books available but two of these capture some of the soul of the deep blue. I’ve included an origami book that includes directions for folding seaweed, coral and ocean life to create an ecosystem in your classroom or at home.
