“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.”
“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.
