Learn About Marine Biology and Science Through Zonk Picture Books
David Hoobler is an artist and author of three Zonk picture books that highlight Zonk, the tortoise, and his many adventures in the ocean when encountering various sea creatures and eco systems. David has used his personal marine biology research and experiences when observing the Sonoran Desert, Baja, and the gulf of California. David also links these books into educational marine biology and science presentations at school and in the community.
Through these events, David has learned that:
- Children are very engaged when reading a rich story in color.
- Students learn respect for their environment through the various creatures in each book.
- All are able to related to the various characters in their daily interactions with each other.
