Lucid Publishing is pleased to announce that their latest title, Who Lives in the Sea? Ocean Animals of Hawaii by Kauai author Monika Mira, has been awarded the Creative Child Magazine Preferred Choice Award for 2013. Creative Child Magazine is a national publication that provides parents with the latest information on how to nurture their children’s creativity.

This is not the first award that Lucid Publishing and Kauai author, Monika Mira has received. Mira’s books have been recognized for their educational content, creativity, and environmental awareness. Her first book, The Complete Hawaiian Reef Fish Coloring Book has won numerous awards and is used as a supplementary textbook in classrooms across the country.

About the book:
Who lives in the sea? Ocean Animals of Hawaii is a repetitive rhyming story about ocean animals that encourages early reading skills and answers the burning questions that the inquisitive minds of young children tend to ask about the world around them. This book includes children's favorite ocean animals like whales, dolphins, sharks, and starfish, but also introduces some more unusual species like the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal, which is only seen in Hawaii. This book is written for children ages 2-6.

Who Lives in the Sea? Ocean Animals of Hawaii has also just been released in ebook format for the Amazon Kindle. Who Lives in the Sea? and the rest of Mira’s books including her Science and Nature for Young Readers series are all available on Amazon.
