Best friends, Bella and Britt live in a beach side community and take every chance they get to explore the beauty of the beach. Never bored the girls continually find surprises during their adventures. On one particular day they witness the unique opportunity of a sea turtle laying her eggs.
“We have to stand guard until she’s back in the water. Then let’s get the ranger.”

After safely covering the egg nest the mama sea turtle ventured back to the sea. Bella and Britt immediately jumped to action and sought out the beach ranger in hopes of securing a barricade around the nest. To no avail, the ranger could not be found. Not discouraged the girls vowed to return early the next day to prevent anyone from disturbing the egg nest.
Early that morning they were confronted by the sand cleaner operator and the volleyball competition committee to clear the way. Do Bella and Britt hold tight to their convictions of protecting the sea turtle nest or do they falter under pressure? Find out in Nancy Stewart’s uplifting story of the importance of protecting our sea life.

Nancy Stewart’s expert style of teaching and not preaching to our children about the wonders of sea life are presented in a glorious written adventure that the reader will surely cherish for many years to come.

Samantha Bell does it again with her welcoming illustrations depicting the beauty of beaches and the love of our environment through the eyes and actions of Bella and Britt.
