Winner of four traditional and indie book awards – middle-grade to adult
Port Winston—home to sun, sand, and shopping. What’s not to like? Everything, to fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Barker, uprooted mid-school year to the Texas coast. When Grandpa, with more judgments than the Old Testament, pronounces her 10¢ shy of worthless and headed for trouble, Elizabeth bolts for Wayward Landing beach—the county’s last wild haven.
A chance encounter with an endangered, nesting sea turtle ignites new purpose, friendships, and trouble even Grandpa couldn’t predict. Her fight to save the Landing unearths complex family ties to the powerful developer and catapults her against those she loves. When the Deepwater Horizon oil slick threatens the turtles’ Louisiana feeding grounds, Elizabeth’s journalist mom hits the front lines. And Elizabeth’s fears hit overdrive. $12.00

Do you love visiting lighthouses? Bravo! You are a “keeper.” As guardian of a vanishing national legacy, your visits literally keep the lights on. This travel log lets you record your trips, whether in the U.S. or worldwide. Sets of four, pre-formatted pages encourage you to capture details on:
* up to 32 lighthouses
* docent stories and your favorite facts
* local attractions, special events or places
* lighthouse overnights or longer stays as volunteer lightkeepers
Each set also includes a photo and brief description of one U.S. lighthouse. Use dedicated pages to log trip purchases or lighthouse-themed mementos and collections. Free space encourages personal journaling, even creative sparks such as pencil, pen, or crayon drawings, poems, prose, story or photography ideas or image lists.
This logbook is fun for the individual lighthouse enthusiast or as a project for the whole family. Stash the book in your suitcase, glove box, or handbag and hit the road.
Maybe pollinators are your passion. Perhaps a growing curiosity on its way to a passion. I Spy! Who’s Using My Garden? will tune your eyes and ears toward your garden in new ways.
The workbook includes information on pollinators, understanding the “keys to their kingdoms,” how to provide for, protect, and enhance their lives, photography tips, and much more. The step-by-step process begins with choosing a small patch to watch and document pollinator activity on a schedule you set. You’ll learn first-hand and record which nectar and pollinator plants they are using, whether you need to add more or different species. Use the Resource pages to find pollinator identification and gardening support books, internet sites, and apps. The Citizen Science section creates a record of observations you’ve uploaded and shared with pollinator programs and researchers. By the end of the season, you’ll know more about your garden and your connections to these wondrous ecosystem workhorses will deepen a few more feet.
