Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 1-4. Turtles have been around for a long time, having survived since the age of dinosaurs--and having played a key role in such literature as Aesop's "The Tortoise and the Hare." Such longevity, as Berger so clearly points out in his book, is no accident. The armor of turtle shells is extremely useful for survival, and the shells' camouflage colors often protect the turtles; they can live in a variety of habitats, and they eat many types of readily available food. The engrossing text and well-labeled color illustrations are guaranteed to fascinate young readers. Berger includes information about the kinds and sizes of turtles, their characteristics, and life cycles as well as endangered species and hints for helping turtles survive. Another volume in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science Book series, this is a reliable choice for libraries that serve young children. (Reviewed Jan. 1, 1993)0060225394Deborah Abbott"
