As always, I found some books:

National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of the Ocean by Catherine D. Hughes.
Bright colors….great graphics… larger size. Take a quick dip or dive in for a swim. Little ones will love this book. I loved it, too. Irresitable!

Fish Forever: The Definitive Guide to Understanding, Selecting, and Preparing Healthy, Delicious, Environmentally Sustainable Seafood by Paul Johnson.
Information….pictures…recipes… Soon I’ll be roasting, grilling, poaching, and sautéing fish. Amazing!

Voyage of the Turtle: In Pursuit of the Earth’s Last Dinosaur by Carl Safina.
A Journey with the turtle, a thrilling natural history adventure. I began to read this book almost as soon as I held it in my hand. The caliber of the writing is as thrilling as the adventure.

Thank you to Chicago and members of my family for a too brief but unforgettable adventure. There’s so much more to see.
