Compassion and the love for our Earth’s surroundings propel Bella and Britt into action in the wake of the Gulf Oil Spill. Almost immediately dismissed by adults to be of any true assistance in the cleanup efforts because of their young age, the girls continue onward down the beach.
Ignoring the dismissal the girls leap into action when they witness the struggle of one pelican as he fights to break free from the oil infested waters. Are their cries for assistance heard in time and acted upon by those in charge? Or will their one pelican meet an early demise?
Children’s author, Nancy Stewart brings her own love and concern for our natural resources to the forefront in this eye opening and spine tingling story of the ramifications of the Gulf Oil Spill. The author also provides a brief history and listing of resources regarding the Gulf Oil Spill to further spark your interest in protecting our environment.
Samantha Bell’s glorious illustrations depict the story in all its beauty and sorrow, compelling the reader to action and further education in how everyone can make the environment better for all.
