" This is a nice little book! Very well written and informative. Wonderful photos. " said.

" I am currently having my own personal love fest with all things National Geographic Kids. A fun and informative introduction to sea turtles. " said.

" I am overjoyed when I find these books at Goodwill. Little boys need a lot of non fiction books with photos. " said.

" Good early reader non-fiction series. Includes non-fiction print features like glossary, text box, section headings. Great photos. Most include sections on environmentalism and conservation. " said.

" This book was very informative, but not very interesting to me. I thought that since I don’t know much about sea turtles this book may interest me, but I never found myself becoming interested. This be would however be great if I ever needed any non-fictional information on sea turtles. " said.

" This National Geographic Level 2 Reading Independently book is chock full of photographs. The seven kinds of sea turtles are addressed, as well as the anatomy, habitat, diet, nesting and hatching, environmental concerns for the sea turtles, protection for them, jokes and riddles that are age appropriate. A beautiful glossary with photographs is included on the last page. THE BOOK IS INEXPENSIVE ($3.99 US). It is soft cover with glossy pages that make the photos pop. " said.

"This book gives general information about sea turtles, where and how they live, the different types of turtles, and why they are endangered. I confess, I didn't really think that I would learn anything new from this book, after all it is for beginning readers, but I did learn some cool new things. For example, the leatherback turtle is not only the biggest sea turtle species (up to 7 feet long), but it doesn't have a hard shell, just rubbery skin with small bones underneath. Here are some of the things that I loved about this book:

The book starts with a riddle, a perfect way to introduce the book (you'll need to hide the cover to do this).
There are fun riddles/jokes throughout the book (kids love riddles and jokes).
The bright, clear illustrations match the text perfectly.
The captions that identify the kind of turtle in each photograph.
The glossary that defines key words and shows a picture to help the reader understand each term.
A fill-in-the-blank paragraph at the end that helps students use the new vocabulary.

I highly recommend this book and others in the series for students who love animals, jokes, and cool facts to share.
