Praise

A Junior Library Guild selection

“Captivating…. A must-have for all science and social studies collections at all grade levels.” —School Library Connections, highly recommended

“A fascinating picture book that shows us what happens if people all around the world stayed inside, away from animals’ habitats…..an eye-opening book and makes you wonder how humans can continue to stay away from animals’ natural habitats.” — Charnaie Gordon, @hereweeread

Sea Lions in the Parking Lot is an amazingly timely and stunning account of how animals were impacted by the Pandemic. As educators we strive to encourage our students to become Global Citizens and this book points them in the right direction!  If you are a teacher who covers Climate Change, Human Impact , Biomes, or Animal Habitats, this book is a great resource to enhance your unit!” —Sasha Swift, Science Teacher, Arts & Letters 305 United, Brooklyn, NY

“Timely, fascinating and informative! Sea Lions in the Parking Lot will make children laugh, wonder, and most importantly, see the interconnectedness between human life and wildlife. The short vignettes and beautiful illustrations make this book accessible to children of all ages. It lends itself perfectly to facilitating lively elementary classroom discussions about the pandemic, animal habitats and conservationism.” —Rebecca McMurdie, Principal, KIPP Washington Heights Elementary School, New York, NY 

“If you’re looking for a book with wide appeal and broad curricular connections, look no further than Sea Lions in the Parking Lot! I teach grades K-5 and I try to incorporate the Global Goals into as many lessons as I can. I see this book fitting into several of those categories—Life on Land, Sustainable Cities and Communities, and Climate Action, to name a few—making for a strong way to tie in a global focus and STEM themes.” —Laura Luker, MLS, Library Teacher, Massachusetts School Library Association President

“In this series of delightful vignettes in which animal behavior and habitat change during the COVID-19 lockdowns, Todaro playfully captures some of the serious problems of coexistence between humans and wild animals.” —Dr. Matthias-Claudio Loretto, Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior
