One Tiny Turtle, by Nicola Davies

Published January 2, 2013 by Dagmar

onetinyturtleA 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.
