One Tiny Turtle

by Nicola Davies
Illustrated by Jane Chapman

Published by U. S. edition: Candlewick Press, 2001
32 pages
ISBN: 0-7636-1549-8

Ages 3 - 7

A baby loggerhead turtle, no bigger than a bottle cap, lives so far out to sea that "land is only a memory." She swims and survives, returning 30 years later to the beach where she was hatched to lay her own eggs. A compelling, lyrical narrative gives an account of her life and is accompanied by realistic watercolor paintings and by informative text in smaller typeface that provides supplementary information. CCBC categories: The Natural World.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
