Turtle Ponderings: The First Ponder

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Welcome to Turtle Ponderings!  This is this the very first entry of something I have been meaning to do for a very long time.  Juliana, Isabella and I hear or  read  just about every interesting animal story out there.  When we find one that catches all of our attention we try to write a book about the subject.  When we heard about as little dolphin who lost her tail and had a prosthetic tail made by a group of engineers  we all thought: Now this is great story!!!! We called the David Yates from Clearwater Aquarium and told him about our other books and voila- here we are about to  launch  our fifth Scholastic book entitled Winter’s Tail: How One Little Dolphin Learned to Swim Again.
