About this deal
Find out about the sizes of different animals (including humans and whales) and use this to create some graphs and charts. This is a magical little story about wildlife, ecology and even touches on loneliness, as many of the illustrations have Emily alone in her preoccupation, with family life hurrying on around her. World Earth Day was last week, and here is a story on that subject – Dear Greenpeace by Simon James. This is a delightful story about a a little girl who is convinced that there is a whale in her pond and writes to Greenpeace to ask how to look after it. Of course, Greenpeace think she’s telling a tall tale until…The empathy and care shown by the characters in the story is one for all of us to remember to give to our world, and ourselves.
This story comprises of several letters between a young girl called Emily and Greenpeace regarding a whale that lives in her pond. Emily begins by requesting information on whales as she thinks she may have seen one in her pond. She explains to Greenpeace that she loves whales and thinks that the one she has spotted may be hurt. Greenpeace respond that Emily must be wrong as whales live in salt water, and so Emily replies that she has now added salt to her pond, every day before school. The letters continue to be sent with Emily sharing more information about the whale each time, and although Greenpeace do provide her with information, they continue to persist that there is no way that a whale could e living in the Emily’s pond. Eventually Emily writes to say that her whale, now named Arthur, has gone but writes a final letter to Greenpeace to say that she saw him at the beach and how much she loves him.In 2022, the European Parliament voted to classify carbon-free nuclear energy as “sustainable” and to include it in an important list called the “Green Taxonomy'' for sustainable finance. This was a HUGE win for science and a MASSIVE bit of good news for me and my gener ation.

Now after finally buying a copy to keep I wish I could borrow a piece of Emily’s cheerful tenacity, which refuses her to be disappointed just because someone suggested she might be so. And I hope that I’ll be always not quite grown-up enough to say something stupid like “There is this cute book about that whale-loving kid with a too vivid imagination.” I want to remain that adult who states: “Let me introduce resourceful Emily. She’s got a whale! In her pond! And she exactly knows who to ask for information without even having to involve her parents.” We never find out if Emily really did see a whale in her pond. I would like to think she did find Arthur in her garden and fed him cornflakes and stroked his head. I think the children would also like to believe this too as we form an attachment to Arthur throughout the book. This could easily lead on to a study about whales themselves and the journeys they take through the ocean when they go on migration. The children could imagine where Arthur goes next and continue his story as he travels through the waves. The book also highlights the important work that Greenpeace does. Looking at the scientific advice Greenpeace gives to Emily, ‘Blue whales are blue and they eat tiny shrimp-like creatures that live in the sea.” shows they are experts in their field but are always willing to share their knowledge with children. The contrast between the scientific language used by Greenpeace and the conversational tone of Emily’s letters with short sentences, ‘I think I should call him Arthur, what do you think?’ can be compared when studying the language of different letters.
After leaving school, he trained to be a police officer but was asked to leave for drawing penguins in his police notebook.https://images.google.bs/url?sa=t&url=https://www.liveinternet.ru/users/gusionsaber/post499368810//
