“Don’t do that! That’s our home! You’re just not being green. Use a bin or take it home. Keep the beaches clean.” Starfish, Crab, and Seagull live on a beautiful beach which is being ruined by rubbish and plastic. Join them as they speak to the people on the beach and remind them about the importance of looking after the beaches and coastlines for everyone.
A little about Jude first:
Born in the seaside town of Southport on the North West Coast of England, I spent 11 years living and teaching in London before settling back up north in Liverpool in 2011. I was an Early Years Teacher for 18 years which complemented my love of all things creative, books and words. Since leaving teaching I’ve changed from a teacher who loved writing into an author who loves storytelling.
I love walking, camping in Buttercup, reading, music, going to gigs and the beach. I’m also rather partial to chocolate and my favourite animals are elephants but don’t tell Lamby!
I love writing books for children and I also run a storytelling business called Little Lamb Tales. I have published 18 books for children to date and I love the imagination and creativity involved in writing for this age group. Many of my stories feature my storytelling mascot Lamby who even has his own Facebook page. My writing is branching out into Adult fiction and in November 2019 I launched my collection of short stories for the adult market. I am currently working on a full-length novel. I am a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors, Team Author UK and I am the current Disney Winnie the Pooh Laureate for the North West of England. I am also a Patron of Reading whose main mission is to encourage and promote reading for pleasure. For 18 years I was a teacher who loved writing and now I’m an author who loves storytelling… how does it get any better than that?
5-Year-Old Logan’s Review: 5-Stars
My favorite part of the book was teaching the people to pick up the trash, and I didn’t like the people throwing their stuff on the ground. They made a mess on the beach, and people shouldn’t do that.
The pictures were funny, and I liked them a lot. My favorite character is the crab because it’s a girl and has silly chins. The seagull is really smart.
I learned a lot of lessons about keeping the beach clean. I learned not to throw my trash on the beach because the earth is so pretty and the trash all over the world will make it look ugly. And, I learned about being green. I really liked this book a lot.
10-Year-old Madi’s Review: 4.5-Stars
My favorite part was when the crab had her claws on her hips and was loud with her tiny little lips. We learned a few lessons about using reusable straws and don’t litter. The main lesson was don ‘t litter and use reusable bags and other things. If there isn’t any, take your trash home or throw it in a trash bin.
Crab was totally my favorite character. The looks on the faces of the fish in the tide pools, they all looked different with expressions you could read. They didn’t like the trash and taught people how to be green and keep the beach clean. They told them the lessons on being green and what to do with your trash.
The beach belongs to the characters and they don’t like anyone throwing their trash everywhere.
I take away a half of a point because it said the same thing over and over. But, I did love the book and I think it teaches some good things on how to be green and make the world a better place.
