I’ll Follow the Moon
By Stephanie Lisa Tara
(Winner of the Mom’s Choice Awards and the Chocolate Lily Book Award)

Author Stephanie Lisa Tara  

Four-time Brown Books Publishing Group author Stephanie Lisa Tara's award winning children's book, I'll Follow the Moon chronicles the journey of baby green sea turtles, nest-to-sea, exploring their extraordinary instinct to follow flickering moonlight home. Green sea turtle mothers deposit more than one hundred eggs in a subterranean beach nest, and after a two-month incubation period, the baby turtles hatch, dig to the surface, and crawl home to the sea.

"What is it about turtles? Slow and steady, they win the race. In all ways. It's true, green sea turtles are endangered, and it's as if this little baby turtle knows it. He has championed his cause quietly, held the banner for six years now, garnering awards and endorsements and praise - worldwide. What can we say about a one-inch little green-skinned infant like him? Well, we can honor he and his kind, as we honor all mothers everywhere. I'll Follow the Moon, written by a mom for all moms - is a tale of hope, love and dreams. Yes, its true that this little guy is tiny, but his heart is as big as the ocean, and will touch yours too."

"I've always believed that magic hides in special places. As a child, people often stared at my bright red hair (which was very, very bright indeed.) Unfortunately, I'd developed a bad habit of making up rhymes about all of them - they became funny characters and I didn't have much time to think about being different. Fanciful, lyrical verses danced in my head, no one was safe!"

"Since then, I've come to believe that children's verse has the power to inspire a deep love of language and learning. Words tripping off the tongue in somersaults, rhymes that stick to your thoughts like taffy--that's the essence of my award-winning books."

"Such nice things have been said of my books such as fun, engaging, delightful, whimsical. Some folks have said I deliver timeless messages of love that kids and parents share again and again. This really makes me very happy. I hope you enjoy my stories too. Captivating children with poetry is something I deeply believe and I live my life with this in mind, always."

"This attractive book is an enjoyable way to introduce young listeners to a
fascinating cycle in nature. Gorgeous watercolors chronicle the journey of a baby
sea turtle from its hatching to its first swim in the sea."
