A Voice for the Spirit Bears: How One Boy Inspired Millions to Save a Rare Animal
A Voice for the Spirit Bears: How One Boy Inspired Millions to Save a Rare Animal is about a little boy named Simon. He liked bears and nature. He heard that people were tearing down forests, so he wanted to help save the bears. Simon learned about a species of bears called the spirit bears, which are only found in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia, Canada. His mom told him that one person can make a difference. Simon raised money at a lemonade stand and wrote a letter to the government. He talked to groups. He eventually met Dr. Jane Goodall. One day he hiked to the Great Bear Rainforest. When he saw a spirit bear, Simon made a promise to the bears that he would help save their habitat.
I loved reading A Voice for the Spirit Bears: How One Boy Inspired Millions to Save a Rare Animal because it is based on a true story and I like learning about real people. I liked that the last two pages tell more about the true story. I really liked the illustrations and how, in the forest, you saw other animals, like squirrels, wolves, and owls. I think it was neat that Simon is always wearing the same yellow sweater because you know exactly where he is in every picture. I think it is really neat that he met Dr. Jane Goodall because I just learned about her in school and saw a play about her. I would recommend this book to people who like nature, bears, and true stories.
