  3. I've read some of these, Melissa, loved Giant Squid & the book about Sylvia Earle, am really looking forward to your shell book, just in time for our family's beach trip in the summer. Thanks for Seashells, Crabs & Seastars, one that looks very inviting!

  4. We are so happy to have you join us and help promote our little project! We had snow here in Central Ohio today so I thank you for taking me away to the beach. I love to see biographies, information, field guides, and an abc book. When I pulled my list I was reminded how informational alphabet books can be.
