This book is a great way to teach children about conservation and the importance of the natural environment. How people fight to protect the environment while others want to develop the land.
The hero of this story has to be the mangrove, how resilient they are and the importance of the role they perform in the tidal system.

How are you recommending this book? Highly recommended
What’s the book’s opening sentence?
If you take the track past the big white shack
To the tidal flats where the mud is black
If you sneak to the left between the tides
You’ll find the place where mangrove hides
