Overview

A concise introduction to some of the oldest living animals.

Descended from enormous prehistoric creatures, huge sea turtles are fascinating creatures. Hatched from small eggs, some can grow to weigh over a thousand pounds.

With colorful, clear illustrations and simple text, Gail Gibbons introduces the eight kinds of sea turtles living in the ocean today. Their similarities and general features are introduced with labeled diagrams, and the differences between species are clearly explained.

Sea Turtles gives young readers an accessible overview of how populations of these large reptiles have become threatened, and discusses the conservation efforts currently taking place. Ideal for aspiring oceanographers, this brightly-illustrated book is a perfect introduction to the subject.

Sea Turtles, goes through and describes the different types and parts of sea turtles. This book also describes the habits of them also. This is a great book to maybe use in a class to have each child choose an anima; and do a report.

This is a very detailed book about turtles, sea turtles and land turtles. Gibbons explains the value they have on the ecosystem, the differences of each type, and the technical names of each turtle. This book is great for students who would like to learn more about turtles. This book can hold a students' attention with the illustrations throughout the story.
