The Lovereading4Kids comment
Dear Greenpeace is 25 years old this year and it’s still as fresh and touching as on its first publication and perhaps even more important. A little girl writes letters to Greenpeace asking how best to care for the blue whale living in her pond. Greenpeace writes back, answering her questions, though insisting that there can’t possibly be a whale in her back garden. At last Emily writes to say that the whale has left – on a migration probably – but she meets him again at the seaside and he lets her stroke his head. It’s one of the loveliest celebrations of a child’s imagination, but also illustrated the connection between children and the natural world, and gently encourages them to make their voices heard. ~ Andrea Reece
Dear Greenpeace by Simon James
Celebrating 25 years of this enchanting ecological fantasy from a multi-award-winning picture book creator.
Worried that the whale living in her pond is unhappy, Emily writes to Greenpeace, who, though offering the best of advice, insist that it is impossible for a whale to live in a pond. Undeterred, Emily continues to seek the best course of action for her beloved whale, finally setting him free.
This charming book about a boy and his whale will stop you in your tracks. It could initiate a talk with your little one about the environment Angels & Urchins
