Reference Sunday: Explaining Oil Spills to Children
All weekend long I watched the news about the huge oil spill near Louisiana. This spill is considered an environmental disaster. I children are probably asking questions about this....I know they are wondering what it could mean to them. I thought I would list some books to help parents explain to their children the ramifications of this disaster. I hope they help.
Oil Spill by Melvin Berger~ from Harpercollins Let's Read and Find Out Series of books. These are great for preschoolers to about 2nd grade. Easy to read and understand.
Oil Spills: Damage, Recovery, and Prevention by Laurence Pringle ~ A Save the Earth book from William Morrow is for older children ages 9-12....great photos and explanations kids can understand. Laurence Pringle is really great at this kind of thing.
These are just two titles I think would help explain this current event~
