One Pelican at a Time

One Pelican at a Time, written by Nancy Stewart and illustrated by Samantha Bell, is the story of two young girls who frequent a beach near their home.  When a gulf oil spill threatens their beach and the animals which inhabit it, they are saddened by the knowledge that there is little they can do to help.
But when their old friend, the pelican is put in harm's way after diving into the oil coated water, the girls act quickly to save the pelican's life.
One Pelican at a Time is a timely book which touches on important issues regarding environmental stewardship and responsibility.  Lovely illustrations help enhance this book which would be an exceptional classroom aid for prompting discussion about caring for our planet.

One Pelican at a Time earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
