Yongsan-Gu, Seoul (Vocus) February 12, 2010 -- In vast bodies of water, from the high-tide mark to the seabed, life dwells. Children’s book author Catherine Witten Boyd entertains the little ones as she exposes them to the breathtaking beauty of marine life with her charming picture book, Underneath The Ocean.
Using bight mixed media art and fanciful language, author Boyd takes children on a fun-filled deep-sea exploration to take a peek at some interesting sea creatures. Kids will enjoy pictures of “a zillion fishes darting through the water”, “gracefully gliding rays”, and “frisky frolicsome dolphins who like to plunge and play”. Parents can guide their kids as they flick through the delightful pages and learn about cute sea horses with curly tails, tiny jellyfish, huge whales, and more. With easy-to-read texts and vibrant illustrations, Underneath The Ocean ignites kids’ passion for learning.
About the Author
Catherine Witten Boyd was raised in the Australian countryside where she spent many hours chasing butterflies and floating in the channel staring at the clouds. After graduating from university with honors in Psychology, Boyd moved to Sydney to work with the psych team at the Institute of Sport at Homebush Bay, a career she ultimately left to satisfy a deep seeded feeling of wanderlust.
During her years travelling, Boyd met her husband and moved with him to the USA. Here, she studied Early Childhood Education and became a preschool teacher. She currently lives in South Korea with her husband and her dog, Henry. She teaches art and craft to preschoolers, and has a weekly story time session. When she’s not in the classroom or her studio, Boyd can be found walking along the river with Henry, exploring Korea with her husband, or daydreaming about her next adventure.
Fifty percent of the author and illustrator royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, an institution that helps children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
