Description-

  • Learn about the life cycle of a green sea turtle and its coral reef habitat in this beautifully illustrated picture book. With backmatter on coral reefs, sea turtles, activities for teachers, and more, this book will be staple in your child's library or elementary classroom.

    Follow a tiny baby sea turtle named Kiki as she scrambles across the sandy beach and into the sea! Floating far out in the ocean, Kiki grows to become a gentle giant, and soon finds her new home in a beautiful coral reef. There she discovers fish and coral of all sizes, and learns how every creature helps out each other, along with a few other surprises: a gang of tangs helps clean the algae growing on her shell, anemones help hide clownfish from predators, seahorses use camouflage, and even more.

    But something calls Kiki back to the beach . . . and soon she lays her own set of eggs! Soon, she will be a mother to a new group of baby sea turtles.

    Backmatter includes:
  • Additional facts and information: about coral reefs, kinds of coral, how sea creatures like clownfish and anemones work in symbiosis, kinds of sea turtles, and more
  • Activities for teachers: including creating Venn diagrams for different species of turtles, a coral reef scavenger hunt, and more
  • Additional resources: for further reading and classroom exploration, including the Sea Turtle Conservancy website, NOAA Coral Reef Conservation website, a biography of scientist Archie Carr, and more

    Wallace uses digital media to create photorealistic spreads for his rhyming adventure. The focus is on one particularly charming mouse whose curiosity leads him to have informative conversations with the likes of a web-spinning spider, an industrious bee, a caterpillar beginning its transformation and a wise box turtle. "The mouse gave his attention to the turtle's candid words, / Which warned the mouse of hidden snakes and predatory birds. / So far he was fond of all the dwellers in this 'hood, / That is until he came upon a patch of rotting wood...." In dramatic scenes, a sinuous snake and a fearsome owl come close to harming the little rodent. But there are tender, rosy-hued moments in which he shares a furry rabbit's burrow and wondrous ones in which the mouse first discovers a group of fireflies. Most impressive is the perspective - always from the mouse's big eyes. As the mouse's adventures come to a close, the tiny creature
