~ CLOSED ~ Book Review and Giveaway: Scampi the Scallop


Scampi The Scallop - A survival story to help build self-esteem



   This lovely children's book is written by Mi-Sa-Le Fransen and illustrated by Greg White.  It tells the story of what happens one day, to a little sea scallop named Scampi.
   After spending the day having fun and eating a big lunch of plankton, Scampi settles down for a long nap, believing his shell will protect him from any danger.
   He is abruptly roused from his peaceful sleep by a starfish that is intent on having little Scampi as his lunch.  If he is going to survive, Scampi must think quickly, be strong and recall his father’s words of wisdom.  
   This book succeeds in presenting the opportunity for a life lesson discussion on overcoming adversity, be it physical or emotional. There is also a teaching opportunity with regard to the anatomy and life habits of a scallop. 
   Scampi is adorable with his multitude of eyes and sweet facial expressions.  You'll fall in love with this beautifully illustrated book, and at 20 pages, it is a perfect bedtime read.

I visited the site and learned that survival of scallop industry depends on the commitment from industries that are connected to it. Well any way, I made an alexa review on your blog. I was just dropping by to tell you about it but I saw this giveaway, so I thought I might give it a try. :)

I learned that scallops are dying. I never even thought that global warming is affecting them.

I like how the book is educational and factional and they learn a lesson out of it.

I was surprised to learn that so many scallops are dying and are so at risk. What an eye-opener!

I learned that scallops are very fragile - temperature, environtmental conditions and what we are doing to the oceans are causing them to die.

According to the picture, Scampi lives in a shell. Hey, I just eat them, I don't know what they look like (thankfully!).

I just realized that you posted a picture of the book (where I got my ah-ha moment from) at the top of this post. Although I did go to the website, I wouldn't want to be disqualified due to my inability to follow directions (smile). In turn, I didn't know that they nap after a meal of plankton (really,I didn't know much about scallops!).
