Children's Literature
If you are in the market for a pet that has a long lifespan, then a turtle may be a good pet for you. Turtles can live for twenty years or longer. This book is an excellent resource for anyone wanting to learn more about turtles or how to care for them. There are many different breeds of turtles. Some turtles like to live mostly on land, some like to live mostly in the water, and others like both land and water. This book is organized with a table of contents, words to know, and frequently asked questions. Throughout this book, children can look for turtle prints to learn interesting facts. There is a special section that may help you decide if your home would be appropriate for a turtle. The cost of turtles, the type of food they like to eat, and the best type of aquariums are discussed. The body of a turtle is described to help owners understand how to take care of its needs. At the end of the book there is a quiz to find out how much the reader learned about turtles. There is also a section on where to find out more information on turtles. Children will enjoy the photographs. Caring for Your Turtle is part of the "Caring for Your Pet" series. 2004, Weigl Publishers Incorporated, Ages 7 to 8.
