Editorial Reviews

Review

Reading San Francisco’s Famous Sea Lions has increased my knowledge of my favorite San Francisco friends. -- Kent L. Brown, Jr., Editor, Highlights for Children

The lively illustrations and fluid text make this book appealing to children as well as adults. -- Ann Bauer, Director of Education, The Marine Mammal Center

The true story of Bingo’s rescue and release is heartwarming and triumphant. -- Susan Andres, Editor, Release

From the Inside Flap

In 1989 a terrible earthquake devastated San Francisco. Shortly thereafter an entire colony of sea lions moved to Pier 39. At first only six sea lions were there. Then within weeks 150 more showed up! Over the years the sea lion population has continued to grow. Today over 1,000 sea lions can be seen entertaining visitors at San Francisco's Pier 39.

Did the earthquake cause the sea lions to move to Pier 39?

Why are they always fighting?

Do they stay at Pier 39 all year?

Are they dangerous?

What do they eat?

Find out the answers to these questions and more inside San Francisco's Famous Sea Lions.


More About the Author

Every living thing has a voice; are you listening?

I am. Animals and nature are the subjects of all my books. That's really me on the elephant!

At the age of sixteen, my very first job was as a zookeeper. I have had my shirt ripped off my body by a jealous female orangutan, hand-fed grapes to upside down fruit bats, engaged in a tug-o-war battle with a three-toed sloth, and escorted an elephant down Pete Rose Way in The Cincinnati Reds opening day parade.

I have a bachelor's degree in theatre from Wilmington College, a professional writing certificate from the University of Cincinnati, and a master's degree in writing for children and young adults from Spalding University.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a librarian in an Elementary and Junior High level Day school in
New York City, I have seen innumerable books, fiction and nonfiction.
It is wonderful to find informative non-fiction books that children
can understand easily while providing a challenge, and be enjoyable. All
three elements can be attributed to San Francisco's Famous Sea Lions.
I brought it to my library and several children have already shown
an interest. I love the book and give it five stars. Susan, NYC

Format: Hardcover
The topic of this book is interesting to children. It deals with factual events, yet explains them in a manner that children can follow and enjoy. Characters (i.e., sea lions) with their own "personalities" are used to explain important conservation points.
This book is of particular interest to our children because of their interest in animals, particularly sea life. Pier 39 is now in our list of places to visit.

Format: Hardcover
As an elementary school teacher, nonfiction material that is informative and entertaining is hard to find. This book with its wonderful illustrations opens many doors for discussions about animal behavior, adaptations, and their habitats.
