Sea Turtles by Gail Gibbons is a great book about sea turtles. In the text ,the author uses in depth illustration and great information about these sea creatures. She uses a great job informing the reader on their habitats, what they eat and their habitat. I would use this book in my classroom during science. Sea Turtles would be a great way to introduce students to cold blooded animals or reptiles.
I'm going to say it again. Close your eyes if you don't want to see it. I LOVE GAIL GIBBONS. This book was fabulous.

She discusses several different sea turtles and provides enough information to really understand them. The illustrations were great, but add some real pictures too.

We spent so much time learning about sea turtles after this. It really sparked a desire to know more so we'd read about a turtle from this book, then go find out more about. Come back to this book for another turtle, and...more
The author makes a stark claim these turtles
have been around for millions of years. There

Science Fiction:
This book would be great when teaching children about sea turtles. It talks about how they live, their habitat, what they eat, why they travel and anything you can think of about sea turtles. This book is great for younger grades. However, when teaching students about classifications and habitats in the upper grades, this would work as well. It is classified as fiction because of the illustrations and the narrative style of the writing.

Great book to share about reptiles and different characteristics. They are cold blooded animals and they have many different types of species. You could use if you are doing a unit about ocean and different types of environments.
This informational picture book is a great resource on sea turtles. It is a great example to use during a study of author's purpose for a writing that is meant to inform.
Learn about what makes sea turtles unique, the various kinds, their diet, and much more.
Great information given in short segments.
