Galápagos Girl / Galapagueña
By Marsha Diane Arnold
Illustrated by Angela Domínguez
For Valentina, living on the Galápagos islands means spending her days outside, observing the natural world around her. She greets sea lions splashing on the shore, scampers over lava rocks with Sally-lightfoot crabs, and swims with manta rays. She is a Galápagos girl, and there is no other place she’d rather be!
But this wondrous world is fragile, and when Valentina learns her wild companions are under threat, she vows to help protect them and the islands.
