Bella Saves the Beach

Nancy Stewart has done it again.

Like her earlier books, the newest one shows that even kids can make a positive difference in the world.

In Bella Saves the Beach the characters from Stewart's award winning book One Pelican at a Time return to tackle another problem with the environment. Even the pelican they rescued from the Gulf oil spill in the previous book appears again and is seen in the charming illustrations by Samantha Bell.

In this new book Bella is disturbed by the trash thrown around on the beach. She and her friend, Britt, try several ways to solve that problem but none of them work. What can they do?

Finally the girls find a way to get others involved and the problem is solved.

After the story ends there's lots of helpful information for young readers about environmental problems and things they can do to make a difference. I think many kids and maybe some adults will be inspired by this book to help make their own worlds better.
