Established in 1987 and celebrated on May 1st, Mother Goose Day aims to promote pre-school reading and learning via nursery rhymes. The term "Mother Goose" dates back to the 1650's. It doesn’t appear to represent a particular person since many Mother Goose stories were written both before and after this term was first used. And the stories were written by numerous authors.

1. Great Barrier Reef World Heritage National Park
Commercial Photography
Spanning a large section of Queensland’s coast, this Federal Marine Park encompasses most of the GBR and is a World Heritage site that is protected by the GBR Marine Park Act. This provides the framework needed for managing the reef's large and delicate ecosystem. The park covers 348,000 sq. kilometres (134,000 sq. miles) and is packed with over 3,000 coral reefs, 1,500 species of fish and 900 islands. There are actually 80 National Parks within its boundaries!

* Read a book with fish (single or multiple) on the cover or a book where the author’s first and last initial can be found in NATIONAL PARK.

The GBR is known as the greatest dive location in the world. Dive the SS Yongala wreck, which is consistently rated as one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. Or head to the northern reaches of the area, where you’ll find a region called the Ribbon Reefs. Stretching for more than 50 miles like a gem-encrusted necklace along the edge of the continental shelf, there are dozens of famous dives great for any level of diver.
Commercial Photography
* Read a book with a main character whose first name starts with a letter found in SCUBA DIVE.

To see the wonders of the reef you do not need to be a diver. You can snorkel and see an amazing array of coral and fish – some you have never even imagined. Don’t be surprised to find yourself swimming with a manta ray or a giant Maori Wrasse. But don’t worry if you are not a swimmer - there are glass bottom boats or semi-submersible subs that can show you the underwater wonders of the reefs.
Commercial Photography
* Read a book where the first letter of every word in the title can be found in GREAT BARRIER REEF (Three Word Minimum).

2. Green Island National Park
Commercial Photography
Declared a NP in 1937, Green Island is the only sand cay on the GBR with a rainforest. The best way to explore it is to follow the 2 km circuit track that leads you through the rainforest via boardwalks with informational stops along the way. You'll learn about the island’s ecosystem, its Aboriginal history and the different species of plants, animals and birds that call the island home. In fact, it has one of the most significant bird colonies on the GBR with 60 species of birds making it a birder’s paradise.
Commercial Photography
* Read a book with a bird on the cover or a book where the author’s first and last initial can be found in RAINFOREST.

Lying upon 710 hectares of reef, Green Island has fantastic snorkeling right off its pristine shore. For a different perspective without having to get into the water, the Jetty Walk offers clear views into the sea life below. You’ll be amazed as schools of colourful fish, stingrays and sea turtles swim almost beneath you. Walk to the end of the jetty to capture a classic postcard shot of the island set in the midst of the blue sea.
Commercial Photography
* Read a book with a main character whose first name starts with a letter found in JETTY WALK.

Green Island Resort is one of the few GBR resorts that sits within a National Park. Acclaimed for being the most ecologically harmonious resort on the reef, it takes seriously the balance between the needs of visitors and the protection of the island’s unique environment. With just 46 suites that are nestled within the rainforest and cleverly secluded from the day visitor facilities, it is the perfect place to stay on your next island getaway. Relax by the pool or enjoy a quiet dinner and sunset on the beach.
Commercial Photography
* Read a book where the first letter of every word in the title can be found in GREEN ISLAND (Two Word Minimum).

3. Fitzroy Island National Park
Commercial Photography
This island national park is close to the mainland making it a popular destination for daytrips. Photography Tours are a fantastic way to see the island and the perfect backdrop for keen photographers. It includes transfers to and from the Island, lunch and use of an underwater camera. During the boat ride to the island, you get a quick course on how to operate your camera along with extra tips on how to "nail" that special shot. You will love capturing all the wonderful sights of the island, above and below the water.
Commercial Photography
* Read a book with a Camera on the cover or a book where the author’s first and last initial can be found in PHOTOGRAPHY .

The Great Barrier Reef is home to six of the world’s seven species of marine turtles.

Fitzroy Island is home to the world class Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre, a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured turtles. Visit the center and learn about the journey of recovery that injured and sick turtles undergo prior to their release back into the ocean.
Turtle_2_SM
* Read a book with a main character whose first name starts with a letter found in TURTLE.

To see all Fitzroy has to offer take one of island’s several walking trails. The Secret Garden walk peacefully winds its way through lush jungle. Native nutmeg, tamarinds and orchids are just a few examples of the exotic flora you'll see on your walk. The track to Nudey Beach is famous for its sharp contrasting beauty of the vivid green of the rainforest to the granite boulders and stunning blue waters of the beach. Despite its name it is not a clothing-optional beach so it's the perfect spot for the family to enjoy swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing in the sun.
Nudey_Beach_SM
* Read a book where the first letter of every word in the title can be found in FITZROY ISLAND (Two Word Minimum). 

4. Hinchinbrook Island National Park

To preserve this rich ecosystem and promote the wild and pristine allure, the island is governed by a strict visitor permit system so be sure to plan ahead.
Commercial Photography
* Read a book that takes place on an island or a book where the author’s first and last initial can be found in JURASSIC.

Commercial Photography
* Read a book with a main character whose first name starts with a letter found in KAYAK.

Most visitors to the island come to conquer the 32 km Thorsborne Trail known as a “must-do walk before you die”. But this “walk” isn’t for the faint of heart but a 4-day wilderness hike for the experienced hiker seeking the solitude and beauty of the island. If you aren’t up for this "walk" - there are shorter day hikes on the island – the most popular being those to Zoe Falls or Mulligan Falls. Put on your hiking boats and enjoy!
Commercial Photography
* Read a book where the first letter of every word in the title can be found in HINCHINBROOK ISLAND (Three Word Minimum).

5. Whitsunday Islands National Park
Commercial Photography
This national park, with its 74 islands is the perfect island escape with its bright blue waters and gorgeous beaches. In fact, it is home to one of the most famous beaches in the world - Whitehaven Beach. You'll be amazed with its massive sweeping patterns of sand visible through the clear water creating a fusion of swirling colors. But don't stop at the beach - be sure to take the walk to the spectacular lookout, Hill Inlet for the picture perfect postcard photo.
Commercial Photography
* Read a book with a beach on the cover or a book where the author’s first and last initial can be found in WHITEHAVEN.

The Whitsundays are a great place to see wildlife. From May to September migrating humpback whales can be found in the waters around the islands.

Whether you’re a keen sailor, or just eager to feel wind in your hair, The Whitsundays are the perfect place for the sailing adventure of your choice.

Precinct 81 153. The Naturalist

Precinct 81 discussion on goodreads

Cold Case Unit  153. The Naturalist    


Case File: 153
Date: May 2018
Cold Case: 153. The Naturalist

Crime: Mutilated bodies
Suspect: Professor Theo Cray (or a grizzly bear)
Location: Montana
Documentation: The Naturalist

Information
Professor Theo Cray is trained to see patterns where others see chaos. So when mutilated bodies found deep in the Montana woods leave the cops searching blindly for clues, Theo sees something they missed. Something unnatural. Something only he can stop.

As a computational biologist, Theo is more familiar with digital code and microbes than the dark arts of forensic sleuthing. But a field trip to Montana suddenly lands him in the middle of an investigation into the bloody killing of one of his former students. As more details, and bodies, come to light, the local cops determine that the killer is either a grizzly gone rogue…or Theo himself. Racing to stay one step ahead of the police, Theo must use his scientific acumen to uncover the killer. Will he be able to become as cunning as the predator he hunts—before he becomes its prey?

Precinct 81 discussion on goodreads

Cold Case Unit       140. Killing Floor

Case File: 140
Date: April 2018
Cold Case: 140. Killing Floor

Crime: Murder
Suspect: Jack Reacher
Location: Georgia
Documentation: Killing Floor

Information
Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

✥ Read a book with red, black and white on the cover
✥ Read a book set in Georgia

Yearly Challenges  2018/19 Listopia Challenge    

2018/19 LISTOPIA CHALLENGE
DURATION : May 1, 2018 – April 30, 2019

Have you used the Listopia function here on Goodreads? It can be very helpful when searching for just the right book for a specific task. For those who aren't familiar with it, at the top of any Goodeads page, hover over the word Browse, then click on Lists in the menu that opens.

This challenge will either introduce you to Listopia or bring you back to visit an old friend. See the different challenge levels for the number of books and lists that are required.

When you sign up for the challenge, be sure to tell us which level you’re attempting. You may upgrade your challenge as the year progresses, if you’d like. Read the Level requirements carefully, as they have changed since last year's challenge! In addition, please be sure to read the Special Notes below. Hopefully, those will answer any questions you may have, but if not, please ask your questions NOW, so you approach the challenge correctly right from the start :)
