“Where Should Turtle Be?” is the story of a baby sea turtle who takes a wrong turn on the way to the ocean.  He finds himself in a variety of places that suit other kinds of turtles but just aren’t right for him.  Where does he belong?

Cayden:  “My favorite part of the book was when he found out where he belonged.  I liked learning about where all of the other kinds of turtles live though.  I’ve seen painted turtles before, but not any of the other kinds in the book.  I liked reading about them though.  The games at the end of the book were fun too!”

Max:  “The turtle was lost!  I liked when he came out of his nest and I liked the sign that said his nest was there.  I liked the bear that tried to help him.”

Parent’s comments:
“Where Should Turtle Be?” by Susan Ring is a great educational book that explores the habitats of four different kinds of turtles.  My children and I loved the book and learned a lot from it.  I especially enjoyed the “For Creative Minds” section at the back of the book which presented more interesting facts about turtles and had two matching games.
