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.
Nancy travels extensively throughout the world, most particularly Africa. She is the US chair of a charity in Lamu, Kenya, that places girls in intermediate schools to allow them to further their education.
Nancy is the author of One Pelican at a Time and two other Bella books: Bella Saves the Beach and Sea Turtle Summer, soon to be published by Guardian Angel Publishers. Nancy will be a presenter at the Illinois Reading Council Conference on March 17, 2011.
