This book is great for the young activist. It shows what one persons passion can lead to the saving of many animals lives. ( )

Vivienne and her classmates need to find a problem somewhere in their town and a way to solve it. They decide to help the hatching sea turtles on the beach find a way to survive. I would use these book to teach students how to work on projects in a group. ( )

This book was a Texas Bluebonnet winner this year and I can definitely agree with that. The illustrations were beautiful and the word context was really good too. I think I would use this during a Science unit on sea turtles and how to save the environment. This would make a great based learning project that all of the students can work together on or can work independently on, depending on what is needed for the rest of the year. I think that the students would get a kick out of this book. The students are about the same age in the book as they would be in the grade that I would read the book too. ( )

Vivienne and her summer school class need a problem they can solve in their town. They decide to inform everyone about the sea turtles that are hatching and how they can help save those hatchlings. This book would be really good to use for project based learning. The students worked together to solve a problem and did everything on their own, with minimal help from their teacher. ( )

As the new girl is getting settled in her new town she discovers hatching eggs on the beach. She sees that the hatch lings have to follow the moon home, into the ocean. But problems arise when the lights from the houses are misguiding the little turtles, so she takes matters into her own hands and searches for help from those in the community. This great information and adventure filled book is great to read and do a unit on helping others, problem solving, or the community and conservation of animals. I enjoyed reading this book very much. ( )
