Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Although this volume covers much of the same ground as other recent books on protecting the environment, its innovative format and copious illustrations give the material a fresh look. Explaining that whales need clean air and water to exist, Bellamy has the ``Friendly Whale'' escort readers through pages jammed with information, statistics, advice and activities. The letters of the word ``whale'' are used to represent five components of the environment: water, habitat, air, life and energy. These symbols appear throughout the book to indicate various ways youngsters can help to save the earth. The projects suggested range from the simple (decorating boxes to hold recyclables, making a compost heap, growing bean sprouts) to the more ambitious (creating a backyard pond). Bellamy splendidly brings home the importance of conservation to young readers. Ages 6-9. ( Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-- An entertaining and informative introduction to environmental protection. A character known as the Friendly Whale defines basic terms; the letters of WHALE are used as an acronym for water, habitat, air, life, and energy. Pollutants affecting each of these elements are described. Most importantly, Bellamy suggests ways for readers to help save the planet and their friends, the whales. Some of the references to garden bugs and plants are British (e.g., greenfly for aphids), but in general the presentation will be relevant to North American audiences. Addresses of various U. S. organizations are listed at the end. The pages are packed with definitions, activities, and interesting facts; as a consequence the dust jacket conceals an otherwise useful index printed on the endpaper. Cartoonlike watercolors complement each column of text. --Pearl Herscovitch, Univ . of Calgary, Alberta, Canada
