A very sweet book about a sea turtle hatchling, in verse and beautiful drawings, written by Stephanie Lisa Tara, illustrated by Lee Edward Fodi.
“On a quite moonlit beach, a baby green sea turtle stirs from a dream of home. Slowly, slowly with a tap, crick, crack, the baby turtle embarks upon a mysterious nighttime journey.” Gentle tender verse and enchanting illustrations carry this tranquil tale from sand to sea. Stephanie’s first book (now an international, double-medalist, bestseller) I’ll Follow the Moon –comforts children with its soothing tone and melodic repetition. A portion of the proceeds go to turtle organizations to help these wonderful creatures survive, and perhaps get them off the Endangered Species list. Every purchase helps to save a sea turtle.”
