A Place for TurtlesFeatured
Turtles are beautiful animals, but they have a hard time in this world - mostly because of human activities that we have the power to change. Inside the pages of this book, young readers are presented with various problems turtles face from invasive plant species in their habitats to the dangers of humans keeping them as pets. With each problem, they're also presented with a solution in a simple way that is easy for readers of all ages to understand.
This book is a fantastic learning tool with gorgeous imagery that will entrance young eyes. It's the kind of book every parent should want their kids reading over and over. I particularly liked the turtle facts spread throughout the book and even the maps showing where certain turtles live.
A fun way to learn about an important subject. Just a beautiful, well-written, and important book.
