Book Review & Giveaway: Marie and Her Friend the Sea Turtle. Ends August 7th
Marie and Her Friend the Sea Turtle by Nicole Weaver and illustrated by Ruben Chavez.
A delightful story about compassion and the richness of family love and devotion!
This story is about the love that developed between a little girl named Marie and a stranded sea turtle. The story tells the struggles Marie had as she helped the sea turtle back out to sea.
Esta historia es sobre el amor que se desarrolló entre una niña llamaba María y una tortuga que vino a tierra para poner sus huevos. La historia cuenta las dificultades que tenía María para regresar la tortuga de nuevo al océano.
Cette histoire est au sujet de l’amour qui s’est développé entre une petite fille qui s’appelait Marie et une tortue de mer qui est venue sur le sable pour pondre ses oeufs. L’histoire raconte les dificultés que Marie a rencontrées pour remettre la tortue dans l’océan.
My Review: This is a great story written by the author in 3 different languages, English, Spanish and French. Marie was seeking seashells at the seaside when she came across a huge sea turtle who was finding it difficult to crawl back into the ocean. She came to its aid and tried to help but the turtle was too huge and she needed help. Her parents was standing at the seaside and the taught of asking them was out of the question for they will take the turtle home and cut it up to make stew.
What is Marie to do? Will her parents cut up the turtle for stew or will they help the poor turtle? You just have to buy your own copy and find out…lol!
This is a great story about friendship between a young girl and a sea turtle and her desire to help it back into the ocean. The story is also told in two other languages, a great way to promote other languages. This is a must have for parents and classroom teaching. One of the best watercolor illustrations I have come across by Ruben Chavez.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
