Monika Mira's Hawaii's Green Sea Turtles
Today, Miss Sassy Pants had a chance to finish reading Monika Mira’s Science and Nature for Young Reader’s book: Hawaii’s Green Sea Turtles. When she finished, she walked in to me, handed me the Kindle, and said, “Best. Book. Ever.”
I asked her why. Here’s what she said:
It was the best book ever because it was really educational and when you read it, you’ll think, “Hey! I want to read it again. And again. And again. And again.” I learned that when you put on sunscreen and go into the ocean and there’s green sea turtles nearby, it can actually hurt them.
I also liked it because sometimes I watch Fetch with Ruff Ruffman and there was one episode and it was about green sea turtles. I liked that episode. And now this book helped me figure out more information about them.
As a parent, I’m excited that Miss Sassy Pants is interested and willing to read more scientific information. Considering that Monika Mira is a marine biologist who actually lives in Hawaii, I know that the information my daughter is learning is not just cut and paste information from the Internet. She’s learning valuable, REAL information from someone with real knowledge.
