In Turtles, early readers will learn how to care for a pet turtle and find out what it needs in its tank. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage emergent readers as they discover what it takes to be a pet owner.

A labeled diagram helps readers understand what a turtle needs, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about pet turtles online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Turtles also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.

Book Review

These bright, slight, upbeat introductions to pet ownership are designed for early readers. Basic information is shared through a collection of vignettes. The text, never more than four brief sentences per spread, always gives a name to the pet in the photo and the child, who may not always be shown. The vocabulary is simple but doesn’t avoid technical terms such as cuttlebone or nocturnal. This clever personalization of the carefully chosen stock photos adds interest. “Ideas for Parents and Teachers” on the verso page offers before, during, and after reading tips. The concluding page “What Does a ____ Need?” covers the basic pet ownership supplies with brightly labeled photos. The close-up cover images, silhouetted against white and banded in a bright color, will draw animal lovers in. Great selections to round out your pet collection. —School Library Journal
