Exactly one year ago today, an explosion sank the Deepwater Horizon rig and the oil from the largest spill in US history has taken a toll on the ocean & the Gulf’s coastal economies. Things are still not ‘back to normal’ in many coastal towns and some may never fully recover. What can WE do? How can we make sure our children learn from this ecological disaster? Books like the one I am spotlighting today may be one part of the answer!
