Patti Pelican and The Gulf Oil Spill- Win it!

Louisiana and much of the Gulf coast had barely recovered from the 2005 devastation of Hurricane Katrina when the area was brought to its knees by the worst environmental catastrophe in U.S. history on April 20, 2010.
Patti Pelican and Sammy Seagull of the “Salty Seas Series” were caught in the wake of this latest tragedy. Patti Pelican and the Gulf Oil Spill tells their inspiring story of rescue and release by the dedicated men and women who fought valiantly and tirelessly to rescue endangered wildlife trapped in the oil along the coastal waterways.
Patti Pelican and her critter friends live in the gulf of Mexico.  As I am sure many of you have assumed, Patti soon gets swept up in the Gulf oil spill.  This book gives a first hand account of the oil spill.  Every destructive, disgusting detail.  This book goes from the happy go lucky animals to the horrible oil spill, to what a critter has to go through in order to get clean and healthy.  Will Patty and friends be ok?  How can we possibly make things right again when we permanently change an ecosystem for the worse?
This was a great conversation starter with the kids and my Pre-K class on why this happened, and what can be done to help the environment, not just now- but also in the future.  Reducing use of fossil fuels and having our country become more “green” can only be a good thing.  The kids had a lot of questions, and made a lot of good points. 
Check out Salty Seas and understand the situation from another point of view.
