Midwest Book Reviewon Aug 15 in Books, News by Dan Bodenstein
Recently the Midwest Book review requested a copy of The Tale of Eartha the Sea Turtle to review for their web site. I received a letter in the mail today indicating that not only did the book receive a great review, but it was selected as a “Reviewer’s Choice”.
Here’s what they had to say ….
“The Tale of Eartha the Sea Turtle” is a colorful child’s eco-tale with a real sea turtle as a heroine. Eartha is a beautiful sea turtle who becomes hopelessly entangled with string from polluting trash in the ocean. She is rescued and treated at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center at Juno Beach, then released back to the ocean. Children are encouraged to care about the sea environment and to take steps to help make it clean and safe. “The Tale of Eartha the Sea Turtle” ends with a Parents’ Page that directs parents to visit www.EarthaTheSeaTurtle.com to learn how their child can adopt a sea turtle. Finally the Native American proverb is quoted: “We do not inherit the land from your ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” “The Tale of Eartha The Sea Turtle” is inspirational eco-education for children ages 4-8, and highly recommended.
I’m very glad that Eartha’s story is being seen as an eco-tale for children. The review will be seen by many libraries, and schools throughout the midwest, an area lacking in “sea turtles”.
