About Nancy Stewart
After having been an elementary school teacher, a management consultant with New Options, Inc. in New York City and a university professor of education, Nancy Stewart now writes children’s books full time. She, her husband and three sons, lived in London for eight years, where she was a consultant to several universities, including Cambridge.
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. All three will be published by Guardian Angel Publishing.
She and her family live in St. Louis and Clearwater Beach, Florida.
One Pelican at a Time is a much needed book that explores the Gulf Oil Spill. The story showcases Bella and her best friend Britt. The girls are very concerned about the slick oil that came to shore. Bella’s and Britt’s concern grew to a peak when their favorite pelican plunged into a patch of blackened sea. They feared for the Pelican’s safety. The girls took action and with their help a bird sanctuary expert helped save the pelican’s life.
Reading One Pelican at a Time left me with a warm fuzzy feeling deep in my heart because of the following reasons:
1) The story chronicles two very responsible teens taking action to help remedy a very serious situation caused by adults.
2) Teachers and parents can read the story to teach children about respecting the earth and how to care for our planet.
3) Most importantly, parents and teachers can use the book to instill in young children that we all, young and old must do our part to keep our planet safe.
Samantha Bell’s illustrations brought this exceptional story to full life. If you are a concerned parent or teacher in search of a good book that will help children learn about caring for the planet, I highly recommend One Pelican at a Time.
