While researching the subject material for the latest installment of Little Katie books, Ms. Dutra worked closely with the fifth grade class of Ms. Hingrajia. Together, they collaborated on illustration ideas for Little Katie Explores the Coral Reefs. Here, you will see the illustration concepts the students worked up. Ms. Dutra enjoyed working closely with the children, helping them to hone their natural artistic abilities. The watercolor painting produced by Ms. Hingrajia’s students were the inspiration for the final illustrations that are found in Little Katie Explores the Coral Reefs.

You will find that the final illustrations mirror quite closely the concept illustrations produced by the students. Ms. Dutra has dedicated this book to the 2017/2018 class of Ms. Hingrajia. She hopes the class enjoyed working with her on this project as much as she enjoyed working with them. It is also her wish that anyone who learns of the story behind the illustrations are also equally encouraged, and continue working on and discovering their artistic path.

    Little Katie is a very adventurous little girl. She loves to go on trips with her parents, especially ones where she can learn things. Her most recent trip was to an aquarium, where she saw all kinds of ocean animals, like sharks and crabs and fish. But Little Katie’s favorite exhibit was the one about the coral reefs. Little Katie quickly decides that she wants to learn even more about coral reefs… by visiting one!

    Along with her adorable little puppy, Smudge, Katie grabs her snorkeling gear and heads off to explore the ocean. Smudge comes along for the adventure with his very own, specially made, doggies-only snorkel and snorkeling mask. Together they swim all over the reef, looking at all the pretty coral and fish. Katie even gets the chance to see her very favorite sea creature: an octopus! Join Little Katie and Smudge on a fun-filled ocean adventure, and even learn about all of the interesting things that coral reefs do. For example, did you know that coral reefs protect the land that they grow beside from bad storms and big waves? Now you do!

    Little Katie Explores the Coral Reefs by Carmela Dutra is a fascinating adventure book that will capture a child’s imagination and teach them some interesting facts, all at the same time. And, as the book tells you before the story begins, all of the facts have been verified with National Geographic, Science Kids, and Cool Kid Facts, so you know you’re getting the true story of one of the ocean’s great treasures.
