St. Margaret’s Day School

Busy making Great Blue Herons

I visited the preschoolers at St. Margaret’s Day School in Annapolis, Maryland on Monday and Wednesday. Special thanks to Tricia Hallberg McVeigh for coordinating! I read from my book Olly’s Explores 7 Wonders of the Chesapeake Bay and the children made their own Great Blue Heron stick puppets complete with real blue feathers!

Olly Explores 7 Wonders of the Chesapeake Bay is a great introduction to some of the natural and historical sights along the Chesapeake Bay. Written from an oyster’s-eye view, all of the sights can be seen from the water.

The Chesapeake Bay area is so rich in both natural and cultural history, and this book highlights just a handful of what our region has to offer. Sights explored in the book include the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, the Great Blue Heron, the Calvert Cliffs, the Cape Henry Lighthouses, the Choptank River Bridge and Pier, and a Maryland skipjack.

Olly Explores 7 Wonders of the Chesapeake Bay is available for purchase through your local Independent bookstore, or through online stores, such as

Here is the book trailer for a peek inside the book.
