Author and Producer Annie Crawley worked with illustrator J. Salvador Ramos to create the cartoon characters in the Adventures of Ocean Annie series. In order for Annie to inspire J. Salvador Ramos, she taught him how to Scuba Dive, you can watch their experiences on the learn to scuba dive playlist on Annie Crawley’s youtube channel. He was a bit nervous because Annie found out he was scared of water. Annie realizes the Ocean and learning how to breathe underwater can change someone’s life! She believed J. could learn to scuba dive and wanted to inspire J. Salvador Ramos to create the best characters available to educate and entertain a new generation about the importance of the ocean, while setting a platform for youth empowerment.
To make this series unique, Annie Crawley created ocean cartoon characters to guide children through their imaginary journey beneath the sea. Ocean Annie, a bubbly blonde scuba diver with a passion for adventure, Makaio, a Hawaiian ukulele player and scuba diver, and Fringy the Sarcastic Fringehead Fish travel into the ocean in their yellow submarine, the Imagination Explorer. While encountering other underwater characters such as sharks, sea turtles, and clownfish, these entertaining characters travel in a yellow submarine with readers to coral reefs, kelp forests, and even the deep sea!
Kids will explore, dream, and discover with Ocean Annie and Makaio as they learn about marine biology, scientific inquiry, geography, and conservation while incorporating principles in character, team-work, communication, and diversity. Real ocean photos taken from around the world combined with cartoon characters will excite children and leave them begging for more! These books need to reach the hands and hearts of children, families and schools across the country. Each book corresponds with one of the DVDs. Hide and Seek on the Reef follows the themes set up by What Makes a Fish a Fish? while Discover Who Lives in the Sea accompanies Who Lives in the Sea? and Explore Diversity in the Sea compliments Dive Into Diversity DVD.
