Turtle Summer, a Journal for my Daughter This book presents a charming idea for a parent and child: to keep a nature scrapbook. Mary Alice Monroe has written and illustrated this enchanting journal of a mother and daughter¿s summer surveillance for loggerhead sea turtles on their beach. While watching the turtle nests, they observe and sketch nature¿s other offerings at the seashore. Like a family photo album, it is an intimate book. Photographer Barbara J. Bergwerf teamed with Mary Alice Monroe to add exceptional and informative photos, including one of Carolina from the previous Sylvan Dell book, Carolina¿s Story: Sea Turtle¿s Get Sick Too! This is a splendid mixture of photos, drawing, and text. Children, ages 4 ¿ 9 will relate to this book and its activities, hopefully clamoring to create a similar journal with their siblings and parents.

This is an amazingly informative book about sea turtles. I loved the photography and explanations for each photograph. I learned a lot from this book and that it will be a great book for all ages. The excellent photography will help to keep the reader engaged while learning all about sea turtles.  Identification of other sea life and shells creates a multipurpose read or study for children to learn about the seacoast. The back of the book has a special section, "For Creative Minds," which helps the reader (and the adult to guide the child) in learning about the wonderful cycle of sea turtles and shell identification. This would be a wonderfully engaging book for families to read prior to a trip to the coast and to take with them.

He opens his eyes and they are glowing and so are his tattoos. He swishes his arm towards the bush and a wash of air blows it away.
