To this end, I've written a children's picture book, One Pelican at a Time, to help put a face on this disaster. One old, crooked beaked pelican helps Bella and Britt point the way to what even kids can do in such a tragedy.
Pelican will be released in the coming weeks. This is the first children's book dealing with the Deepwater Horizon spill to be published in the US.
Children want to know what they can do in such times. One Pelican at a Time empowers kids to help in a real and meaningful way. I hope they, and you, enjoy it. And if it becomes a teaching moment tool, how wonderful is that?
