"Turtle, turtle, watch out!" is the refrain of this book, as the turtle must face dangers throughout her life. From hatching on a beach shared with humans, to swimming out to sea, living there for 20 years, and finally making her way back to the beach to lay her eggs, it's an adventurous life! The soft, realistic illustrations, often covering two pages, provide dramatic visual representation of the turtle's journey. The back of the book features notes on how people are helping sea turtles survive, as well as information on sea turtle species. 32 pages, paperback. Preschool-Grade 2.
