Bella saves the Beach by Nancy Stewart

Author, Nancy Stewart, has done it again.  I've had the privilege to review many of Stewart's books about Bella with conservation being the theme and I believe so far this one is my favorite.  If you visit Stewart's web site you'll find that this isn't the first book in the Bella series that she's written.  Bella saves the Beach is a wonderful addition to this series.  The books are educational and wonderful tools to use in a classroom or if you just wish to help your child learn more about how they can help beautify the world they live in.  The illustrations are watercolors and very soft and lovely to set the mood.

About the book:

Bella and Britt are worried about all the trash appearing on their beautiful beach.  But what can they do?  Britt is leaving on vacation, and Bella can’t solve the problem alone.  Without  adults to lend a hand, can they possibly save their beach?


Bella, Britt and all their friends built sand castles and filled moats with salty sea. But this summer, the girls were worried.

“Look at all this trash, Britt,” said Bella.
She nodded. “Yeah, and I leave on vacation tomorrow. I can’t help pick it up!” 
Next morning, Bella walked along the beach alone. “Hello.” Bella said to the old crooked beak pelican, perched on his piling. “Somebody has to help, and I guess it’s me.”
