Saylor is a young seagull who is often motivated by his tummy rather than his wits, but living on the Florida Panhandle is dangerous. With fishermen everywhere, a little seagull must rely on what he has been taught to survive. That is, until lunchtime, when Saylor forgets all the warnings his friends have given him. When he finds himself in serious trouble, his friends set out to help. Come to the seashore and cheer them on.
Saylor, a young seagull, and his friends struggle to survive in the Florida Panhandle. When hunger starts to override what he’s been told, Saylor finds himself in trouble, but with the help of Old Gray Pelican, Piper the Sandpiper, and Big Blue Heron, he’s freed and learns the biggest lesson of them all—listen to your elders.
Whether for children who enjoy the ocean or for those who like birds, SAYLOR ON THE SEASHORE is a fun spin on beach reading. Both informative and inspiring, it opens up discussions about the dangers of the world and the importance of listening to the wisdom of others. In addition, it provides a conversational bridge to further learn about geography: What is a panhandle? It also gently brings to light the realities of the circle of life. Librarians, educators, and parents will enjoy its educational value, and children will connect with Saylor as his friends help him escape a dangerous situation.
SAYLOR ON THE SEASHORE is a great reading experience for summer trips to the beach. Parents and children can point out seagulls and herons and have conversations about fishing while enjoying their vacation, which will make it a trip and a book they’ll not likely forget.
