Robert Scott Thayer (author) and Lauren Gallegos (illustrator) have joined together to create this lovely book that tells children (and adults) many things about the amazing manatee. We couldn't have been happier with the beautiful and very vivid pictures, and my son loved the facts listed throughout the pages. That's right up his inquisitive little alley, and it's a great way for him to learn. He hasn't seen a manatee in real life yet, but we're working on it.
The book has a traditional picture book storyline going on, and it has the fast facts mentioned above included too. That means it appeals to the adventurer and the intellect in you.
The picture on top is an example of a page with storyline.

I saw a manatee once at the inlet. Followed it along the concrete siding for as long as I could. It was a very cool moment. Have you ever seen one? You can learn more about this book by visiting the website. You can also purchase a book to call your own there or you can purchase it on Amazon.
