Honey Girl : The Hawaiian Monk Seal
Honey Girl is an endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal who lives off the coast of Hawaii. She is known as “Super Mom” because she has raised seven babies. One day, scientists find that Honey Girl is injured. They take her in to remove a fish hook from her cheek and remove half of her tongue. When Honey Girl is released back into the wild, scientists aren’t sure how she will do. Will Honey Girl be okay and able to keep helping her endangered population?
Honey Girl: The Hawaiian Monk Seal is an amazing book. I had never heard of a Hawaiian monk seal before, and I learned so much about them. The pages at the back of the book teach even more about Hawaiian monk seals. I loved the illustrations; they show how beautiful Hawaii is and what a Hawaiian monk seal looks like. This book reminds me of visiting the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where scientists help sea creatures from Florida. I saw them helping a sea turtle in their hospital who had swallowed fishing line. I would recommend this book to kids who like learning about animals.
