Sweet T and the Turtle Team by Cat Michaels
I am always looking for special books for my ten-year-old granddaughter, and Sweet T and the Turtle Team by Cat Michaels is a perfect match!
When Tara arrives at Aunt Mae Gray’s cottage on Gull Island, she misses her sister Kristen terribly. At least the girls can use their parent’s tablets to text each other at the end of each day, but it isn’t like having someone Tara could talk to anytime she wanted. Besides, neighbor Billy made fun of her fast speech and “northern” ways. Did he have a secret that made him so angry? Why is it so difficult to make friends in unfamiliar surroundings?
When a tropical storm bears down on Gull Island, everyone worries about the hatchlings in the turtle nests. Will they survive the tempest driving in from the ocean? Can the Turtle Team save them?
From saving pelicans and sea turtles to dealing with huge cockroaches, Tara takes your child on such a delightful adventure they won’t want to put this book down. It is filled with courage, hope, and love which will drive the imagination of any child.
