Gibbons introduces sea turtles, air-breathing marine animals that have inhabited the earth since the time of the dinosaurs. She provides general information about this reptile family (including notable body characteristics, life cycle, and adaptations to life in salt water) and describes eight specific kinds of sea turtles.
For each, she explains distinguishing features, diet, habitat, and size. She also discusses the problems of turtle survival and efforts by humans to protect these fascinating creatures. Gibbons' distinctive watercolor-and-ink illustrations help clarify the text and will intrigue young readers. Appended sections detail the differences between marine and land and freshwater species and offer additional sea turtle facts, making this a useful source for beginning report writers and interested browsers.
