This is a companion audiobook to Mary Alice Monroe's novel Swimming Lessons, the sequel to The Beach House. In the novel, listeners witness a young mother, Toy, writing a journal for her daughter, Little Lovie. This is the journal Toy is writing. This journal explains the nesting cycle of sea turtles and the natural life along the Southeastern coast, including local shore birds, shells, and the sea turtle hospital. Adults and children will enjoy the information and the journal with or without the novel. The "For Creative Minds" educational section includes turtle nesting facts, a shell identification activity, and a make-your-own nature journal.
