But a big machine is coming to clear the beach and no ranger is available. Can the children manage to protect the eggs?
Sea Turtle Summer by Nancy Stewart is part of the series about Bella and Britt, the two girls who were also the main characters in Stewart's best-selling book, One Pelican at a Time, about the Gulf Oil Spill. Like that prior book, this one not only helps readers learn to appreciate our natural world, it shows them that even kids can make a positive difference in the world by standing up for what is right.
The illustrations by Samantha Bell carry us away to the sunny beach and show us what the endangered turtles really look like.
This is another book that would make a great gift for kids.
