BOOKS ABOUT SEA TURTLES

Tuesdays are for Turtles is a great new book about a 2019 Emerald Isle sea turtle nest. It’s a wonderful book that provides factual information geared towards children. Our own Thomas P. Gill wrote the book through his granddaughter Maddy’s eyes. Tom is a regular morning walker in Zone 11 here in Emerald Isle! This would be a great book to have on hand for you, your family, and visitors to enjoy.

You can pick up a copy from Emerald Isle Books & Toys, Dee Gee's Gifts & Books (Morehead City), Beach Book Mart (Atlantic Beach), Island Encore Consignment (Indian Beach), Little Something More (Swansboro), Barnes & Noble (Jacksonville). You also can purchase a Kindle or paperback copy thru Amazon. EISTP will receive donations as a proceed of book sales.
