About the Author

According to The Washington Post, Gail Gibbons "has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children's writer-illustrator." The multi award-winning Ms. Gibbons is the author of more than 100 books for young readers, including the bestselling titles From Seed to Plant and Monarch Butterfly. Her many honors include the Regina Medal, the Washington Post/Children's Book Guild Nonfiction Award and the NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Book Award.


Gr 1-3-Soft watercolor illustrations amplify brief descriptions of the eight species of sea turtles. Unique characteristics are described in a few carefully chosen words, and the pictures draw readers into the creatures' underwater world. Differences in color, size, shell, etc. are clearly defined. Many pages are devoted to the similarities in the species' reproductive behavior. One double-page spread covers the differences between the more familiar and the seldom seen sea turtles. This book does not provide in-depth coverage; how the creatures breathe when at sea or why their populations have declined by half over the last 20 years are not explained. However, it is an inviting look at how these ancient reptiles live, reproduce, and grow, and at the environmental changes that threaten their existence.-Frances E. Millhouser, Chantilly Regional Library, VA
