Editorial Reviews

Midwest Review
"With Donna Rathmell’s simple, straightforward text suitable for children grades 1 to 3, and illustrated with the color photography of Barbara Bergweft, Carolina’s Story: Sea Turtles Get Sick Too! is the true life story of the rehabilitation of a loggerhead turtle. Young readers get to see the inside of a turtle hospital, where sick and injured sea turtles are cared for and then released back into the wild when they are healthy. The final pages offer fun facts and a "make your own sea turtle" cutouts designs for photocopying and rainy day fun. A delightful introduction to one of nature’s wondrous sea creatures."
Science Books & Films
"This is a delightful book that will promote the understanding of the biology and conservation of sea turtles in general. The story of the rescue and rehabilitation of a loggerhead turtle is sure to enhance the efforts of individuals to educate children about the nature of our sea turtle population. Although the story takes place in South Caroilina, it is equally applicable to other areas where loggerheads frequent. The story is limited, however, and would be even more valuable as an educational tool if more details were provided about sea turtle biology. "
Children's Literature
Magnificent, bright and glossy photos in this picture book join with well-written text to make a winning combination. The tale traces the rescue and treatment of Carolina, a very ill sea turtle discovered near South Carolina. Simple, friendly large-print text discusses the steps from rescue to recovery. The format allows readers or listeners to relate what is happening to Carolina to their own doctor or hospital visits. Close-ups of Carolina show many phases of her treatment, like having her mouth checked, getting a shower, and lying upside down to get barnacles scraped off her body. Part way though the book she splashes her helper and indicates she is improving. The tale's ending culminates with her release back into the ocean. In addition to a good story, the book has well-structured end matter that adds to its success. Included are fun facts, math games, ideas about the conservation of sea turtles, and a craft for making a sea turtle. There is also an added page of photos taken of other sea turtles that were rescued and received treatment. This book is an excellent supplement to science, reading, and math classes. 2005, Sylvan Dell Publishing, Ages 4 to 8.
—Nancy Garhan Attebury
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A photographic journal of the rescue and rehabilitation of an ailing female loggerhead turtle. Close-up color photos record "Carolina's" arrival at the Sea Turtle Hospital, her medical treatment, and the efforts of staff and volunteers to get her back on her flippers and seaworthy. The simple text is highly anthropomorphic (Carolina "feels better" when she sees another ill turtle; upon release, she is "thankful to all the people who had helped her when she was sick," etc.), but it will appeal to its intended audience. Back matter includes photos showing other rescued loggerheads being cared for, "Fun Facts," and a template for making a paper turtle. Similar to (but far simpler than) Kathryn Lasky's richer Interrupted Journey (Candlewick 2001), Rathmell's book will find eager readers and perhaps boost their empathy level.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Donna Rathmell German (Carolina's Story and Octavia) is the author of 16 cookbooks, four of which were New York Times best-sellers including The Bread Machine Cookbook Series, which have sold more than 3 million copies. The 1990's brought extensive media experience promoting her cookbooks, with appearances on such nationally respected programs as The Today Show, The 700 Club, Attitudes with Linda Dano, QVC, and a host of other radio and television programs. Donna is a volunteer at the South Carolina Aquarium, where she has developed a keen interest in their sea turtle rescue program. It was there that she met Barbara Bergwerf, the photographer for Carolina's Story. Two of life's inspirations led to the writing of Carolina's Story: one day, several years ago, the dock master at the marina called to ask Donna to safeguard an injured sea turtle that stranded nearby. As she and her daughter waited for the rescue team to arrive, she began to think about the importance of helping endangered turtles thrive in their natural environment. The second inspiration occurred when Donna was introduced to the Sea Turtle Hospital. She recalled an incident from years before when her then five-year-old daughter was injured in a fall and had to be rushed to a nearby Children's Hospital. The terrifying experience of emergency surgery and the attendant tests and medications brought to mind the same treatments she was seeing with the turtles. She saw both experiences as a way to increase children's awareness and respect for the natural world, and wrote a book that is also an invaluable resource for educating children on what to expect from their own medical treatment.

    My second grade students loved this story of Carolina, a sea turtle that was rescued and taken to a Turtle Hospital. I used it for an example of literary or narrative non-fiction. The pictures are large and clear allowing the students to see how Carolina was treated at the hospital and how she lived in the tanks. The book follows her through her release. It is written in easily understood language and clearly communicates the difficulty of rescuing a sea turtle, and includes many facts about sea turtles and the care of sea turtles. I'd highly recommend this for a 2nd grade read-aloud literary or narrative non-fiction or for second graders to read themselves.
