THE TURTLE DANCES by Daniel S. Janik - Excerpt #3 (Family Rated)

[image] 

"Chapter 13 - The Turtle Dances
   "You know what?" The young man offered, thinking of the two turtles they'd been watching. “We danced so well together, I think we might just win!"
   "You know, I think so, too,“ replied his partner. “Thanks to our turtle-friends out there," the two finished together.
   The couple returned, hand-in-hand, to the dance floor to join the line of competitors. Waiting for the judges to announce the awards, the young man turned to his now self-assured partner, touched the tip of her hand softly much the way the turtles had, and smiled. "The turtle dances," he said softly.
   "Yes," she replied, while unseen in the distance, Isla and Surf happily executed a perfect bounce, twirl and slide. "The turtle dances!"

Continuing the unique tradition of "talking up" rather than down to readers, THE TURTLE DANCES demonstrates the power and beauty of narrative storytelling at its finest. Designed to re-awaken curiosity, discovery in both children and adults, the book is an excellent way to introduce literacy and associated lifelong learning pleasures.

Mulit-award-winning author, naturalist, artist, photographer and movie producer Daniel S. Janik resides in Honolulu, Hawaii with his wife and dance partner, Setsuko Tsuchiya. Together they welcome Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles to Hawaii throughout the year. An Oklahoma painter known for her vivid, almost photographic renditions of nature, illustrator Ruth R. Janik created the 28 naturalistic line drawings in the book specifically for children to color.

THE TURTLE DANCES is the third in the Savant "Color-Me-Please" series and the third in the author's "Pacific Rim Naturalist" group of children's books.

Hey, A. G. -- I heard that you may have a new patron, Karen Grimshaw. I was hoping she'd join us for today's chat, as she has so many good ideas about "getting the word out." 

By the way, I wonder how many people know of your five YouTube videos (that's in addition to Savant-produced audiovideo book previews)? If not, here's a good place to start:



Well, it is indeed approaching the end of today's chat. I've thoroughly enjoyed chatting with today's featured authors, Helen R. Davis, A. G. Hayes, Raymond Gaynor and Daniel S. Janik. I hope if you run across this chat while surfing the internet you'll join us in our open-to-the-public and all writers/authors monthly chat, regularly scheduled for the third Saturday of every month from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Hawaii Standard Time. 

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season.
