One Pelican at a Time is the first US children's book to address the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of April 20,2010. The book features Bella and Britt and their heroic efforts to save their friend, the old crooked beak pelican, whom they've known all their lives.
An author's page gives facts about the spill as well as some green tips on how to save energy and make us less dependent on fossil fuel. Britt and Bella lead us all by example.
