Author Jim Arnosky’s Official Websites:
The story of a Momma turtle as she battles the negative areas of the sea to make it to a beach where her children will be birthed. Although she comes out with scars, life still prevails.
The first thing that grabs you about Turtle In The Sea is the beautiful illustrations. Each page could be a work hanging in a museum. Just really wonderfully detailed. The writing is smart and fits with the artwork masterfully.
There is really nothing I can find wrong with this book. Even the slightly sad parts which are just realistically what happens in the sea are pleasant to view.
This is my first book by Jim Arnosky but from what I have read in other reviews all his books have similar beauty. They are the type of books I would love to collect even though I do not have kids.
