The Voyage of Turtle Rex, by Kurt Cyrus

turtle rexThis book creates a wonderful bridge between modern day sea turtles and their much larger prehistoric ancestors, archelon.  Like sea turtles today, Archelon apparently returned to the same beaches where they were born just as sea turtles do today.

The rhymes in this book are soothing and the illustrations are really beautiful.  Dinosaur fans will particularly delight in the illustrations.  My students are always quiet and attentive while I read this book.  I love it so much that I read it to my classes each year. I particularly like reading this book to first and second graders.
