Follow the Moon Home by Philippe Cousteau

Philippe Cousteau (Jacques’ grandson) and Deborah Hopkinson’s new juvenile non-fiction book, Follow the Moon Home, is a captivating story about "one idea, twenty kids, and a hundred sea turtles" that begs to be read aloud like a picture book, (I double-checked the call number to make sure that it really was J 597.928 COU).

It clearly describes and applies the scientific method and community activism, and is beautifully illustrated by Meilo So, who depicts the library in a pop-out spot very early on.

Be sure to explore Philippe Cousteau’s organization, all about children changing the world, called Earth-Echo International.
