Winston Of Churchill By Jean Davies Okimoto Winston of Churchill had been the 2008 winner of the Green Earth Book award and after reading this book, I can see why. Winston of Churchill: One Bear's battle Against Global Warming is a wonderful image book that addresses the intense issue of global warming. Churchill, Manitoba is the polar bear capitol of the world. Every winter season, tourists flock to the tiny town to watch the has hunt and frolic on the frozen waters of the Hudson Bay. This year, though, the actual tourists are in for a big surprise...Winston! A smart, fierce, brave bear, Winston of Churchill has noticed that their icy home is slowly melting off. He realizes that the earth is getting warmer due to human-generated pollution: "Burning gasoline in cars makes carbon dioxide. Methane gas comes from rotting garbage in landfills. Digging with regard to oil and natural gas and mining coal lets out a gas called nitrous oxide. Too much of these gases is no good. But eco-friendly plants turn carbon dioxide into oxygen, which is very good. Individuals need to burn less gas, make less garbage, as well as plant more trees." Winston explains to the other bears why the ice is melting, and using the mixing words of his famous namesake, rallies the has to convince humans in order to save their Arctic home. But what's the best way to promote alter Change yourself, of course! Winston's wife notices that Winston himself contributes to global warming-- by smoking a big, burning up, smelly cigar! "'How can you convince people to stop performing what they're doing unless you can show that every little bit assists' His wife glared at him. 'No stogie or I'm not going.' " Winston learns an unexpected training and realizes that he, as well, must change his ways, so he gives upward his cigar to help persuade humans to improve their world. Even though the book conveys a serious message, it's given a great sense of humor and how could you not love a book about a stogie-smoking Polar Bear? it is a great book to help kids understand we all must do our part to take care of our earth.
