Bella and Britt think living by the beach is the coolest thing ever. When they discover a Loggerhead Sea Turtle laying her eggs in broad daylight, the girls go into action to help.
No one, though, seems to care about the nest. The beach is a busy place and is getting busier by the minute on such a beautiful summer day. What can they do? Who will help, and what do they learn about themselves?
As a bonus, Sea Turtle Summer contains kid appealing facts about sea turtles.
Next morning, the girls looked carefully at the nest, making sure not to touch it.
“Our stick’s still here, and everything seems okay,” observed Britt.
Bella sighed. “But there’s no sign of the ranger.”
“And here comes the sand cleaner!” cried Britt. “We have to do something fast.”
“Quick! Hold hands across the nest. Maybe he’ll stop in time!” Bella yelled.
The sand cleaning machine came to a squealing stop right in front of the girls. “What do you two think you’re doing?” bellowed the startled driver. “You could have been hurt!”
“We’re saving sea turtles!” they both shouted over the noisy vehicle.
“Sorry, girls, but volleyball nets are going up right here in a few minutes,” said the driver. “There’s an all city play-off this morning.”
“Oh, no,” Bella sighed. “What about the nest?”
