If you are looking for a picture book for young children that offers a positive message about the environment without pushing the point - I’ve found it. Stranded is based on a true story of a young boy who helped save the lives of many whales.
Ben lives near the ocean. He fishes and understands the creatures surrounding his town. When he notices his dog acting weirdly and hears strange sounds, he knows exactly what to do.
The Reading Stack reviewed Mark Wilson’s My Mothers Eyes and Journey of the Sea Turtle in March and June 2009 respectively.
