J T Seavey by Peter Crowley
On a warm July morning in Scarborough, Maine, a young girl and her mother arrive at their favorite back-cove beach. The serene setting quickly changes when Mom goes off to buy them a snack, and the child is visited by JT Seavey, an exasperated and somewhat indignant Maine harbor seal. In his "seal-angry speech," JT recounts the effects of pollution on his home in the sea and warns of the eminent danger to his young seal family. With the help of Dick, the kind and knowing Harbor Master, a determined eight-year-old girl must find a way to save JT's home and family before it's too late. Along the way, she learns about the environment, personal responsibility, and what she can indeed accomplish through the strength of her resolve.
JT Seavey is an inspiring tale for children of all ages. Written in a fun, rhyming style, this book will captivate readers with its whimsical characters and playful prose-as a bonus, they'll come away with some valuable lessons in personal and environmental accountability.
