This is a nonfiction book about the life of a loggerhead sea turtle. It is a great book for a lesson on turtles ( )
  MankinSamara | Apr 16, 2017 |
It is a great informational book in watercolors because it tells interesting facts about sea turtles and it is attractive with beautiful pictures. Davies shares a story about the life of a sea turtle while adding factual information on other parts of the page. Just listen to this language, “Floating in the sea she weighs nothing, but on land she’s heavier than a man. So every flipper step is a struggle, and her eyes stream with salty tears, which help keep them free of sand.” It is so lovely. ( )

A book about the life of a turtle. It follows the life of a turtle so it isn't non-fiction, but doesn't involve aspects like the turtle talking. It gives information on the lives of turtle. ( )

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. ( )

"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.
