Amazon bestselling, award winning artist and multi-award-winning author Janina Rossiter brings her passions together in her work: painting and illustrating children's books.
As an illustrator and author, Janina was inspired to write "Diamonds, Hearts & Sea Stars!" and "123 Who’s Cleaning the Sea?" because of her concerns for our environment. She is passionate about fighting climate change, protecting nature and keeping the oceans free from plastic and other pollutants. Our future depends on our actions today.
Janina created the illustrations for the Blue Ocean Watch video ‘The Song of Life’ dealing with how sound pollution affects whales.
As an artist, she feels happiest when recreating images of the ocean in her paintings. “I hope that through my art and my love of the sea, I can make my voice heard and make a difference."
While forms are precise in a geometry book,
In Nature, we must take a second good look.
So step outside and open your eyes -
The shapes you see could be quite a surprise.
So let’s look together, just you and me.
I wonder which shapes we’ll be able to see.
Come on a magical journey and discover the shapes and creatures of the ocean in rhymes and riddles. You will learn about sea creatures in a fun and entertaining way, and also become aware of the man-made threats they face and how we can help to protect them. Beautifully illustrated, informative and thought provoking, this wonderful book is also great in a classroom for raising environmental awareness among children. Fun riddles will keep children's attention and motivate them to interact and learn. It teaches and motivates young and old to take action to discover and protect marine life.
An exquisitely illustrated opportunity to thinkcreatively and learn fun facts about incredible ocean creatures, threats facing their survival, and how to take action to protect them! Abudding marine biologist must-have!

Seven and eight, is it too late?
Not quite yet, but let's not wait!
8 fishing nets on the ocean floor, dragged by an octopus up to the shore.
The sea creatures are working hard to clean their living environment of ocean pollution.
Inspired by powerful visuals of ocean pollution, this book will teach your child not only numbers and how to count but also the importance of taking care of our environment. Children will love learning how little changes they make can protect our planet.
1,2,3, Who's Cleaning the Sea is the second book from award-winning and Amazon best-selling author Janina Rossiter in her 'concept picture book' series. Janina Rossiter has again combined two subjects with imaginative drawings, resulting in a beautiful book that children and adults will enjoy reading.
This picture book will teach your child to associate numbers with their quantities while also learning about the importance of keeping plastics and other pollutants out of our oceans. Younger children will be able to count along and slightly older children (ages 4-6) will learn to make logical connections between numbers and facts. Readers of all ages will enjoy the pictures, the story, and the message.
This illustration was initially created for The Marine Diaries to help them with their ecosystem project 'The Marine Ecosystem Diaries' and with the approval of Rebecca Daniel I sent the mangrove illustration to Explorers Against Extinction so it could raise money to protect wildlife. Since then it has gone on its own little journey. I'm still blown away and extremely thankful. It was exhibited 2 weeks in the leaders lounge at COP26, won the wild spaces award and is hanging at the OXO gallery in London until the end of November.
