Three for Thursday

Leave a comment

It’s been 44 days since oil began spilling into the Gulf of Mexico.  Oil has washed ashore in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama – and Florida is  just a few days away.  It’s nearly impossible to avoid the heartbreaking images of oil-covered pelicans and oily shores. If you are looking for a book that will help you explain this disaster to your children, I would recommend one of these three books about the Exon Valdez Oil Spill.  For children ages 5 and over, they are perfect: informative rather than frightening and inspiring rather than hopeless.
