Miss L'eau (Blog Tour/Book Review)

Title: Miss L'eau
Author: T. Katz
Publisher: Blue Works

First sentence: Miss L'eau was, without a doubt, one of the best teachers we ever had at Redwood Elementary.

My synopsis: James and David knew that Miss L'eau was special. Her eyes would change colors and become wild like the sea whenever you were close enough to look straight into them. But when James see her ride her bike into the ocean in the middle of a storm he doesn't know what to think. He goes to school the next day prepared to tell everyone that he know why and where she had gone, only to see her standing at the front of the class like any other day!

James tells David what happened and together they plan a way to find out what is going on. What they discover will lead them to organize a Seaside Spring Clean Week and to start them thinking more about how they affect their environment.

My thoughts: This was such a cute book! In an engaging story it introduces young children to how important the environment is and that even though they are children, they are never too young to make things better. This would be a good book to teach as an introduction to the environmental problems that we face today.
