Synopsis

Olivia's Birds Saving the Gulf by Olivia Bouler

This title features bird facts, Olivia's own drawings and colour photos, all printed on eco-friendly paper. It is suitable for children aged 3 to 9 years old. One 11 year-old girl can make a difference, as budding ornithologist and artist Olivia Bouler proved, single-handedly raising over $175,000 for the Gulf oil spill recovery. Devastated by the disaster, Olivia wrote a letter promising to send each donor to the cause one of her own bird paintings, many of which are captured in this lavish book that recaps her valiant campaign. Written in her own words, this unique book features Olivia's hand-drawn illustrations, bird facts and full-colour photos. The book is printed on eco-friendly paper and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Audubon's Gulf Coast clean up efforts.
