Orca Rescue! : The True Story of an Orphaned Orca Named Springer by Donna Sandstrom, Sarah Burwash (Illustrated by)


This is a great book to teach children about orca whales.  There are a lot of facts about them.  And you get to meet Springer who is the first whale to be reunited with a pod.

Kids Can Press and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on October 5th.

Springer and her mother got separated from their pod.  They thought they were dead.  But Springer survived.  And she was fairly healthy and liked to play with sticks.

They wanted to return her to her pod, so they got a big group of people together and asked for donations.  It took several steps to get her well and return her near her pod.

She is the very first baby orca that got reunited with her pod.  They learned a lot from her.

Orcas need help or they are going to become extinct.  This gives you some good ideas on what you can do to help.
