Children’s Book Committee – July Pick
Sea Turtle Scientist
by Stephen R. Swinburne
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt BFYR
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.
