Olly Explores 7 Wonders
of the Chesapeake Bay
by Elaine Ann Allen, illustrations by Kelli Nash

Olly the Oyster is ready for an adventure. So when
Mr. Oyster tells him about the wonders of the
Chesapeake Bay, he sets off to see them. Following
along with Olly, kids will learn about some wonders
that fly, like the Great Blue Heron, a symbol of the
Bay; some that shine at night, like the Cape Henry
Lighthouse; and even a wonder where you can find
fossils of crocodile teeth—the Calvert Cliffs.

As Olly meets and chats with new friends like fiddler
crabs, barnacles, and rockfish, he learns about the
creatures, people, and places that form the
community of the Chesapeake. Olly the Oyster helps
the importance of the Bay and its ecosystem come
to life. For ages 5 to 8.
