About the Book

Sidney the Seagull, affectionately known as Sid by his fellow laughing gulls, loves flying to lighthouses and bay markers around the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. He and his buddies brag about the latest “marks” they’ve left all around the Bay. As far as gulls go, however, Sid is quite knowledgeable and loves to share lots of tidbits of information with his flying friends.

In Sidney Seagull “Marks” Lighthouses and Buoys of the Chesapeake, a humorous picture book, Sid teaches his gull buddies about the lighthouses, buoys, and day markers around Chesapeake Bay. He also tells them about how the environment and increased technology is changing life around in the area, and he shares the “Legend of the ‘Steadfast’ Day Marker.”

Filled with fun facts and illustrations, Sidney Seagull “Marks” Lighthouses and Buoys of the Chesapeake helps the Bay and its habitat come alive for middle readers.
