Stella and the Seagull by Georgina Stevens & Izzy Burton

You’re never too small to make a difference.

Stella and the Seagull is an empowering story about one little girl who inspires her entire community to take action on plastic pollution.

Stella visits Granny Maggie by the sea. Every day a little seagull brings her gifts of the things it finds on the beach. One day the seagull doesn’t come. When they find it, they can see that it is very sick. The vet tells them the seagull has eaten too much plastic.

Stella tries to pick up the litter she finds but there is too much for one little girl to handle. With Granny Maggie’s help, she plans a Beach Clean Party and gets everyone involved.

This beautiful picture book with illustrations by Izzy Burton is perfect for inspiring young readers at home and to accompany numerous topics at school: the sea, protecting the environment, helping animals, taking action… There is so much to be done with this book. Children will love the appealing beach scenes, the gorgeous seagull and the role model of Stella who shows them that lots of small changes make a big difference.

Thank you to Oxford University Press for this important book. I can’t wait to share it with my Brownie unit. They love to take action and this book will inspire them even more.
