Great for animal lovers

Finally, a series that my 10 yr old daughter finds exciting! She has been going to bed early so she has extra time to read every night.

My Daughter is 9 and loves this series

My 9 year old daughter is need a lot of encouragement to read. With this series I never have to remind her to read! She loves them!


This book is very intriguing, I couldn't put it down! Brenna and two other friends (Zoe and Maggie) went to Florda to study manatees. When they get there they meet a marine biologist who works at a rescue center for manatees and other animals. This place needs ALOT of money to stay open. When Brenna takes a picture of a famous baseball player driving his boat too fast where manatees may be, and then shows it to him after his baseball game... Did she just save the rescue center? I suggest this book to anyone who likes water animals, and alot of adventure.

I love it!

This story is about a girl going to Florida to help manatees. There is a lot of information on manatee care, and there is information about manatees in there.But, really, this is a great book! For kids (like myself), most of the time we're just looked upon, and never given a chance. Yet, this story shows that you can make a difference. It's very touching. This story is a great read--for children and animal lovers alike. =)

I wish they had these books out when I was younger!

What a wonderful book! And what a enjoyable book to read with your child! I feel so lucky that my 7 year old daughter and I found these books to read together. It is such a pleasure to be able to read a book to her that is both interesting and engrossing to my child and to myself as well. This is a book that I read a chapter to her, and then she reads a chapter to me, and I remain interested and intrigued. My daughter is an animal lover and wants to be a vet when she grows up. This book, and other books in the Wild at Heart series show not only what a vet does, but also how a child can pitch in and make a real difference. This particular book is about manatees and how the environment and the boats in Florida are causing them to be an endangered species. It is written from the perspective of Brenna and relates her feelings about saving the manatees. This book is also educates the reader about manatees, their anatomy, their care, and their problems. By the end of the book, I had a lump in my throat as I read the conclusion, it was so touching! If you are a young girl (or boy for that matter), read this book! If you are a parent, read it with your child! I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as my daughter and I did.
