Zobi and the Zoox: A Story of Coral Bleaching
Ailsa Wild,Aviva Reed,Briony Barr,Gregory Crocetti
With her home under threat from a warming ocean, Zobi, a brave rhizobia bacterium, teams up with a family of slow but steady Zoox (zooxanthellae). As the coral bleaches, everyone begins to starve. Can Zobi and the Zoox work together to save the day?
"Zobi and the Zoox is not only a story, it is also a science book. Adults and children will learn so much about coral as they read this story and every illustration adds even more information... an excellent book to use to teach children (and their adults) just how important the coral reef is to ocean health."
"I felt like I was a piece of coral and I was just watching all these little things going on in the mucus. I really felt like I was a part of it."
