Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Turtles have been around since the age of the dinosaurs. Berger provides basic facts about the body structure, various types of turtles and their characteristics. Turtles are adaptable and they eat a variety of foods and have acclimated to different climates. The one sad note is the impact that the expansion of towns and roads and the impact of pollution on these long-lived reptiles. A part of the "Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science" series - Level 2.
Children's Literature - Glen Mayers
Turtles are one of the earth's oldest known surviving species. They've been around since the dinosaur era, for over 200 million years. Turtles' life spans are some of the longest known to man with the oldest living to 170 years of age. The author tells us about the many different kinds of turtles that are alive in our world, and provides many facts about them in a way that children can understand. The author concludes by explaining how important it is for us to protect turtles because many of them are on the endangered species list. And that with care from humans, we can enjoy turtles for many years to come.
