Pedro ‘n’ Pip by Taylor Barton is a great new book that teaches children about the importance of taking care of our environment. Pedro ‘n’ Pip is about a tenacious ten-year-old girl, named Pip, and a ‘rockoctopus’, Pedro, who she meets while scuba diving after an oil spill in the Gulf. Together, they forge a powerful friendship and unite sea creatures and landlubbers alike to help clean up our waters for the good of all. A funny, tender, courageous story meant to raise environmental awareness in our kids.
Taylor Barton is the wife of G.E. Smith who was SNL’s music director (’85-’95) and Bob Dylan’s sideman from ’88-’92 (as well as Roger Waters, Bowie and Hall & Oates). Together they are bring music and reading together is this great interactive book experience. The book is available in hardcover but can also be downloaded for an interactive online experience that features music performed by G.E. Smith & Taylor Barton and other great artists. Check out a clip of the music from the book by visiting here!
It’s a great way to teach children about the environment and how to do our part to protect it. It’s a fun interactive book experience. My seven year old loved the music, she loves to sing and dance and the introduction of music into the book added a great element to the story.
Pedro ‘n’ Pip makes a great holiday gift. If you kiddo loves to read this makes a great gift idea. My kids love getting new books every Christmas and this one is a very special book that introduces and important topic in a fun interactive way.
