There are many hidden facts about the turtles in this book that can help the students determine the importance of the book. The book talks about friendship are good details for the students to pull out.

This is a story that starts out one way and goes in another direction. It is a good book to help the children think and the ending isn't nearly as expected as one may think. What starts out as one man cleaning the beach turns into three unlikely friends making sure that all the baby turtles make it into the water. I would read this book with first grade. It has a lot of details but it is also short to keep them engaged for a developmental appropriate age.
