Talking to Your Preschooler about the Gulf Oil Tragedy

As I sat down to write a blog about my favorite ocean books and activities for preschoolers, I thought of the awful situation with the BP Oil Spill. Seeing oil-covered wildlife seems to be standard news each night and our children may be exposed to these images. I found some great links that give us ideas on how to address this issue with young children.
