Things on the book tour are going well and I've had the chance to meet kids from all over the country. Tonight I'm in Metairie, LA and tomorrow, Fairhope, AL. I hope to check out some of the Gulf's coastline so I can see how things are going for myself. One year after the spill began, I know there's still a lot of environmental work to be done, but there are a lot of people pitching in to try to protect our natural habitat. My slogan for the book tour has become GO BIRDS!!

A GREAT big thank you to Disney Friends for Change and to Youth Service of America for the grant-- allowing me to give out copies of my book to Costa Rican children. And thanks to Four Seasons Resorts for setting up the visit. Costa Rica has a really important and diverse ecosystem, home to many species of birds and animals, so it will be great to see it first hand and to talk about conservation when I'm there.
