Summary:  Isley loves everything about the ocean near her home until one day when a dead whale washes up on the beach.  When she learns that the whale starved to death because its stomach was filled with plastic, she becomes angry.  Turning her anger into action, Isley begins a campaign in her community to stop using plastic bags, straws, and other products.  At first people are enthusiastic, but eventually the convenience of plastic causes them to backslide.  Isley begins collecting the plastic she finds on the beach and uses it to create a giant whale sculpture.  The whale serves as a reminder to people in the community, who begin to make bigger changes like banning plastic grocery bags and installing filling stations for water bottles.  Includes an author’s note and a list of ideas for reducing plastics, both locally and globally.  32 pages; ages 4-8.

Pros:  An empowering story about a girl who finds a way to make a difference in her community, with information that may inspire kids to take action themselves.

Cons:  The writing felt a little stilted.

  1. Hello, my name is Lisa. I recently self published a children’s book about a whale who fulfills her greatest wish of learning to fly. I was wondering if I could send it to you to review? Thank you for your time
