She became a certified SCUBA diver while in high school, and spent many years exploring coastal waters. Her fascination with marine invertebrates grew while working for the New England Aquarium as an Outreach Specialist. Since then, she's spent years caring for these fascinating sea animals, and teaching children and adults about the habitats and sea life commonly found near the shore. The material covered in her children's stories are topics commonly taught by Petrie in her popular sea animal programs.
In her free time, Petrie made many trips to the Ossipee, New Hampshire area to visit with the Ossipee Historical Society, the Carroll County Courthouse, and the Concord State Library, trying to piece together the events of that kept everyone mesmerized while the tragic story was unfolding, yet was seldom mentioned years later.
She gained interest in this story after learning the cottage she spent a single night vacationing in as a baby, seemed to be occupied by an unsettling presence. As a certified teacher, grades K-8, and a Reading Specialist, all ages, Petrie has earned her Bachelor of Science and Master of Education degrees in the field of education, with a concentration in reading. Petrie also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art, with a graphic design concentration.

It introduces children to different sea animals who like to eat clams just like me. The rhyming prose is written very well and will keeps kids engaged in the story and the progressive question of who made the hole. This is my favorite of the three books in this sea animal educational series, partly because of the educational material, but mostly because of the fun text.
Her expert credentials clearly shine through in the science pages that not only teach children, but the adults in their lives, too.
“These Shells, They Travel.”
Oh, and the little fish with their thought bubble commentary add extra fun that kids will enjoy! I know my granddaughter and I will have many years of fun with this book! Title: 5. Terrific book!
The illustration's are colorful, large and engaging and will grab and hold the children's attention! A great story with a final page of more in depth information on the characters. Another terrific book by Janice. Can't wait to see whats next from her. Petrie's newest picture book about critters from the sea is as delightful as her first book, The Lumpy, Bumpy Horseshoe Crab.
