Wow I din'nt know that
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.
I personly think that sea turtles are great. My favorite animal is a sea turtle.
