Place for Turtles (A Place For...)

Turtles outlived the dinosaurs, but today they are one of the most threatened species of vertebrae on Earth. How can we help?

In simple yet engaging language, acclaimed science writer Melissa Stewart showcases twelve types of North American turtles, from the familiar box turtle to the majestic loggerhead turtle. Her clear narrative shows the threats these turtles face, and informative sidebars describe a wide variety of efforts to save them.

Featuring glorious full-color illustrations by Higgins Bond and range maps for each turtle, this is a perfect choice for budding young scientists, environmentalists, and nature lovers. This nonfiction picture book is part of a prize-winning series designed to inform young readers about a wide range of environmental issues and to present ways people can help protect animals and their natural habitats.
