A wonderful non-fiction picture book about a loggerhead turtle’s life from the time when she is as tiny as a bottle top to her return to the beach where she is born thirty years later. There are two layers to the book. The larger print provides a great real aloud for first graders. The smaller print provides more detailed information about turtles. The illustrations, by Jane Chapman, are beautiful, colorful and full-page. My young audience was captivated and clapped when we finished.
