Sea Turtle Summer Wins the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

  Sea Turtle Summer recently won the Children's Literary Classics Seal of Approval for 2012. Literary Classics is an organization "dedicated to promoting excellence in literature, thereby encouraging a passion for reading while promoting education, imagination, and character in young readers."

The Children's Classics Review says:

"Sea Turtle Summer is the story of two brave young girls who simply won't take 'no' for an answer when it comes to saving a clutch of young turtle eggs. After witnessing a turtle laying eggs on the beach, they rush to tell the ranger so no harm will come to the eggs. Upon discovering that the ranger is out sick for the day, the girls take matters into their own hands. Despite numerous obstacles, the girls insist upon helping ensure the safety of the eggs. In the end, they are rewarded for their efforts when, months later, they have the opportunity to help guide the hatchlings safely to sea.

Sea Turtle Summer offers an inspiring message of empowerment while fostering a love for nature and wildlife. Nancy Stewart, bestselling author of the Bella and Britt Beach Series children's books, has created another heartwarming tale of hope and determination which is sure to instill positive values in the minds of young readers.

Sea Turtle Summer earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval, a designation reserved for those books which uphold the rigorous criteria set forth by the Children's Literary Classics review committee, a team comprised of individuals with backgrounds in publishing, editing, writing, illustration and graphic design."
