Editorial Reviews

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. "
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."
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.

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.
