Not only are the illustrations amazing, but the descriptive words are also captivating. Davies writes, "She's a baby, so her shell is soft as old leather." While academic language is simple in this book, students can learn about the life cycles of loggerhead turtles. This book could be used to support the crosscutting concept of structure and function; students could study the structure of the turtle's bony shell and function it has for the turtle. ( )

This was another book I read during my elementary practicum experience. Again, the beautifully done illustrations help in bringing the book to life. While the story follows the life of one tiny turtle from hatching to returning to her nesting beach. It also provides tidbits of factual information throughout as well. I had the students read this story with me and they all became extremely engaged the story and the information learned from it. ( )

I really enjoyed reading this book. First, I liked this book because of its pictures. Each page was done in water color and I think this technique truly grasped the vision of an ocean. The colors blended well together and the pictures were very engaging and wonderful to look at. Another reason why I liked this book was because of its content. The author did a great job attracting her young audience. The word choice was appropriate for young readers and she really made the hatching and laying of a young turtle interesting and exciting. Lastly, I liked this book because of the plot. There was a turtle who swam back to the beach where she was once laid and she laid her eggs in the same place. The reader can go on her adventure with her as she travels throughout the ocean. The main message of this story is to expose readers to the life cycle and everyday life of a turtle in the ocean. ( )

"Simple, lyrical words and bright, acrylic doublepage pictures convey the astonishing facts about the loggerhead sea turtle. . . . A powerful nature story for a young audience." —BOOKLIST

Far, far out at sea lives one of the world's most mysterious creatures, the loggerhead turtle. For thirty years she swims the oceans, wandering thousands of miles as she searches for food. Then, one summer night, she lands on a beach to lay her eggs — the very same beach where she herself was born. Nicola Davies's lyrical text offers fascinating information about the journey of the tiny, endangered loggerhead, while charming paintings by Jane Chapman vividly illustrate one turtle's odyssey.
