Author Biography

After retiring from the corporate world, Carol Story began volunteering for various causes. One of her favorite volunteer jobs was walking the beach in Stratford, Connecticut for the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds, where she helped monitor the piping plovers, least terns, common terns and American oystercatchers nesting there.
She would share her observations with her mother, who had long been interested in birds. After her mother’s death and at the suggestion of a friend, she wrote “Ellie’s Day at the Shore” as a way to tie together her mother’s memory with her volunteer work.
Carol lives in Connecticut and currently volunteers at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport.

Ellie’s Day At The Shore by Carol Story is a children's book about a young girl and her aunt who go on a trip to the shore. Whilst at the beach, the young girl, Ellie, finds many different creatures, and her aunt explains what each creature is. From pooping birds to terrapin turtles, this book is packed with adventure and delight. So join Ellie in her quest to find more beach creatures. Who knows what she'll find next?

Ellie's Day At The Shore is a fun and adventurous children's book that will not only entertain your child, it will also educate them on the many types of sea creatures you can find, some of which I hadn't even heard of! This story by the talented author Carol Story is a beautiful tribute to her mother and young niece, Ellie. Carol included her mom's family-famous "Rotten Rhymes" and it was the perfect style of writing to use because it fits pleasantly with the story in its telling, whilst also keeping the young reader's attention.

The illustrations by Pippa J Ellis are captivating and I found them to be simplistic yet effective; I loved that about them. Grab a copy of Ellie's Day At The Shore and plan your trip to the beach, because after reading this with your child, I'm sure they'll want to go on an adventure and find the countless creatures that Ellie found in this book. I enjoyed reading Carol Story's book and wish the author all the best in their writing journey.
