One Pelican at a Time is a much needed book that explores the Gulf Oil Spill. The story showcases Bella and her best friend Britt. The girls are very concerned about the slick oil that came to shore. Bella’s and Britt’s concern grew to a peak when their favorite pelican plunged into a patch of blackened sea. They feared for the Pelican’s safety. The girls took action and with their help a bird sanctuary expert helped save the pelican’s life.

Reading One Pelican at a Time left me with a warm fuzzy feeling deep in my heart because of the following reasons:

1) The story chronicles two very responsible teens taking action to help remedy a very serious situation caused by adults.

2) Teachers and parents can read the story to teach children about respecting the earth and how to care for our planet.

3) Most importantly, parents and teachers can use the book to instill in young children that we all, young and old must do our part to keep our planet safe.

Samantha Bell’s illustrations brought this exceptional story to full life. If you are a concerned parent or teacher in search of a good book that will help children learn about caring for the planet, I highly recommend One Pelican at a Time.

    “One Pelican at a TIme” is a good book. However, I just finished reading “Harriet’s Home at Sea”. This book is also a children’s book on oil spills, although this one takes place at the Great Barrier Reef. The illustrations and story line are interesting, unique, captivating, and most importantly, educational!
