23 Apr Turtle program features ‘The Little Turkle’
Meet author Deborah Van Dyken and learn about her children’s book The Little Turkle — which includes themes of animal conservation, marine education and enduring friendship — during an upcoming book reading and signing at the museum. Van Dyken, a Beaufort attorney and writer was inspired to write the story based on her longtime observation of sea turtles and their nests along Cape Lookout National Seashore. The book is charmingly illustrated by Carteret County native Susan Mason, who lives Down East.
Educator Christine Brin has designed a special program on turtles to go with the book reading. Preschoolers will be treated to fun turtle facts, engage in turtle-related activities and enjoy the story of The Little Turkle.
The program will be held at 10 a.m. April 25 at the museum.
