Riassunto: A hopeful tale and song inspired by the Gulf Oil tragedy, this book shows how clean energy can help save wildlife and power our world without harm to the environment. Includes music CD. How ironic that the Gulf of Mexico oil spill began on EARTH Day 2010. Using a traditional tune with all-new lyrics, Christine Lavin has created a simple yet powerful message that will have children feeling for the plight of our wildlife while at the same time, giving them ideas on how to make the world a cleaner and safer place. The book has already garnered high praise from Kirkus: If the future of our planet is in the hands of our children, then reading them books like this one might be a wise idea...Franco Feeney's thoughtfully detailed illustrations of oil-slicked sea critters will tug at young readers' heartstrings. Experts from the fields of environmental science, wildlife rehabilitation, education, marine biology, renewable energy and earth science all contributed to the science-filled appendix.
