Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
Anyone who has seen a sea turtle in a TV nature documentary or up close in an aquarium can't help but be fascinated with these ocean voyagers. Now very young or non-readers (the reading level is 2, interest level 1-4) can also learn about sea turtles with this book, part of the "Animal Life Cycles" series. Written by Wendy Perkins, from the San Diego Zoo, the book concentrates on the many stages of a sea turtle's life cycle. While males spend almost all of their lives in the water, the female sea turtle spends one very important stage of life on land. She mates, then crawls onto land to lay her eggs before dragging her heavy body back to sea. In fact, she may do this as many as nine times in a season. Turtle hatchlings dig out of their sandy nests and scamper quickly to the ocean. Not many make it, since hatchlings have predators waiting to eat them. This book with its simple-to-read text and big, clear photo illustrations, tells readers how long each life stage lasts and includes a timeline running on the bottom of the pages. It also features a picture glossary of words featured in red type throughout the book, an interactive game for readers, an index plus web sites as well as information and ideas for parents and teachers. While the photos are clear and colorful, including the names of the many pictured sea turtles would have been helpful. Reviewer: Judy Crowder
