This is a trilingual book written in English, Spanish and French. Marie finds a Sea Turtle on the shore that can’t make it back to the Sea. She tries to help the turtle but isn’t strong enough. She’s scared to ask for help because she knows her parents will want to turn the turtle into Turtle Soup.

This book would be beneficial in a multi-lingual family. Since each page has the text written in all 3 languages it would be a great book to read in a home where a parent can read one language and the child another. It’s been many years since I took Spanish in High School. I had fun comparing the Spanish and English text seeing what words I could remember.

Marie is a young girl who loves to search the beach for treasures. One day she spots what she thinks is the largest shell ever. The thought to be shell, stuck in the sand speaks to her, and asks for help. Marie is amazed and does her best to help, but she is not strong enough to do the job. Marie's parents, who are accustomed to eating seafood, want to cook her new found friend. Marie is adamant about saving this large creature. She cries and begs, and never gives up until her parents come to the realization that Marie is right.

Marie's beach buddy eventually finds her way back to the sea with the help of others, although, it leaves something very precious behind. This is a book of awareness that will enlighten children about wild life. Marie's parents are a bit scary in their beginning intentions, but I think children will engage in Marie's dilemma, and feel empowered to know they can stand their ground when they are in the right.

This book will educate children who live in land locked areas, and interest those who live in, and near coastal shores. A story of saving a sea creature would be a satisfying, educational read for all children. Marie and Her Friend the Sea Turtle is a great story of how a child can feel compassion for another living thing.

Children will certainly identify with Marie's giving spirit.

This is a great story written by the author in 3 different languages, English, Spanish and French. Marie was seeking seashells at the seaside when she came across a huge sea turtle who was finding it difficult to crawl back into the ocean. She came to its aid and tried to help but the turtle was too huge and she needed help. Her parents was standing at the seaside and the taught of asking them was out of the question for they will take the turtle home and cut it up to make stew.

What is Marie to do? Will her parents cut up the turtle for stew or will they help the poor turtle? You just have to buy your own copy and find out...lol!

This is a great story about friendship between a young girl and a sea turtle and her desire to help it back into the ocean. The story is also told in two other languages, a great way to promote other languages. This is a must have for parents and classroom teaching. One of the best watercolor illustrations I have come across by Ruben Chavez.

Format: Paperback
In this book Marie follows her heart and cares for a sea turtle that cannot return to the ocean on its own. I feel this story is so important because not only does it teach children to follow their hearts and take care of our world's animals, but it also introduces children to sea turtles in general. Growing up in FL, I learned a lot about sea turtles as a child and what a hard life they can have and how important it is for humans to intervene when a turtle is in trouble. Unfortunately, our turtles need to be protected from humans as well and Marie teaches children to be brave and stand up for what is right even if it is scary. Now that I live in TN, I see a definite need to teach children about sea turtles and how to protect them. This is a creature that children in landlocked states don't really learn about. This book is especially important for readers in states such as mine. Not only is it a good book to purchase for your child but every school should have one in their library as well. This beautifully written story includes illustrations that are colorful and a joy to look at!

We immediately fall in love with Marie's compassionate nature. Her desire to help as well as to protect her new friend, the sea turtle, is endearing. Her willingness to hold her ground with her parents and plead the turtle's case in a respectful, but insistent manner is a good example to children that adults are not always right and it is important to state yourself.

I loved that the story is told in three languages, English, Spanish and French. Many families are bi-lingual and this story allows the native language speaking parent/grandparent to sit and read with their English-speaking child. And it exposes the child to a third language.

The illustrations are lovely, with bright colors and lots of action.

"Marie and Her Friend the Sea Turtle" is a very cute -trilingual- juvenile story written by Nicole Weaver. It is about a little girl named Mary who one day, on her usual quest to find seashells along the shore of an ocean near her house, ends up finding instead a sea turtle in great distress. She feels very sorry for the sea turtle and tries very hard to rescue her by trying to push her back in the ocean. But she quickly realizes that she cannot; and has to rely on her parents, whom she fears for loving sea turtle stew,to help her free her. At the end of the story, her compassion and love for the sea turtle convince her parents, who were thinking of eating the sea turtle, to save her instead. I would truly recommend it to French and Spanish dual-language programs and to parents desiring to teach their children English, Spanish, and French. This story can also be used to teach children about love, determination, and compassion.
