What's the Story?:

From "The Chadwick Treasury begins with the original story of Chadwick the Crab, a little crab in the Chesapeake Bay who has big dreams of becoming a star at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. The adventures continue when Chadwick teams up with friends Bernie the Sea Gull, Toulouse the Canada Goose, and Baron Von Heron, among others, to tackle the problem of pollution in Chadwick and the Garplegrungen. Romance blossoms next. Chadwick asks his special friend, Esmerelda, to marry him. Chadwick's Wedding is a joyous event in Shady Creek. Finally, in Chadwick Forever, our beloved crabs celebrate the arrival of their new family just when other bay friends find themselves on the endangered species list. Chadwick hopes readers will enjoy the stories and will also be inspired to help keep the Chesapeake Bay a safe place to live."

My Two Cents:

"The Chadwick Treasury" is the story of a little blue crab that lives in the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland with a bunch of animal friends. All Chadwick wants is to make sure that everyone knows about the Chesapeake Bay and maybe even become a star to make sure everyone hears that message! With great illustrations and good stories, this was the perfect book to introduce my girls to what the Chesapeake Bay is and why it's so important to protect it.

As a Marylander, I love the Chesapeake Bay. It is such an amazing resource and a very important one as well. It contributes to a ton of business and leisure around the state. I love that this book can take a really important subject like the Chesapeake Bay and its preservation and put it at a level that young children can understand and enjoy. This book was such a great jumping off point for a lot of good conversations with my girls about what the Bay is, who lives in the Bay, and what we can do to help them!
