Children’s Book Committee – July Pick

July 7, 2014

sea-turtle-scientist

Sea Turtle Scientist
by Stephen R. Swinburne
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt BFYR
2014

Scientist Kimberly Stewart leads the fascinating study of the life cycle and behavioral habits of an ancient and endangered species and explores the efforts to save them. Explicit, vivid photos. (9-13)

Our Young Reviewers say:

We liked the pictures and photographs – especially the one that showed all the turtles, how they are endangered and what we can do to help them. Also, we enjoyed how kids are learning about the conservation of the turtles as well as how they survive. Scientists study the turtles without affecting them.
– Wesley, Age 16 & Tristan, Age 15, Wilmington, NC

    It always saddens me when I hear of a species being endangered, unless it was something like scorpions lol Although, I’m sure they’re hear for a reason, too! Sounds like a wonderful book 🙂
