Fantastic children’s eco-book: Walter The Wandering Wave


Technology today has changed the way we read as adults, but why should grown-ups have all the fun?


Shane Janssens thought the same thing and in March, Janssens‘ children’s book Walter The Wandering Wave released in both print and app form.


This book is environmentally friendly not only in story but in construction as well. With a printed copy, you are getting Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) approved paper that has been printed on with soy ink. If you choose to download the app, you will receive a digital book that has character narration, interactive characters, ‘Read To Me’ options and tons of revolutionary and fun options that will keep your child engaged and having fun.


As a life-long surfer, Janssens has always been fascinated with the ocean. But he “wanted to break away from the traditional story about a fish”.  As he reaches out to children through the character of a wave, kids learn about sea life from a new perspective. Stevie the NOT so scary shark, Dorothy the dancing dolphin, Sammy the super starfish and more work together through this book to teach kids several different lessons, the clear one being that the ocean is each child’s friend.
