In simple yet informative language, A Place for Turtles introduces young readers to the ways human action or inaction can affect turtle populations and opens kids minds to a wide range of environmental issues. Describing various examples, the text provides an intriguing look at turtles, at the ecosystems that support their survival, and at the efforts of some people to save them. At the end of the book, the author offers readers a list of things they can do to help protect these special creatures in their own communities.
"While the topic of the book is clearly turtles, the narrative...will get young
minds thinking about the interconnectedness of organisms, ecology, and the
impact of human actions on the world around them. A classroom-friendly blend of
story and fact." --Booklist, March 14, 2013
