Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Imagine finding turtle eggs in your sandbox When a mother diamondback terrapin lays eggs in a young girl's sandbox, the girl becomes a turtle-sitter to help the babies safely hatch. She raises the teeny hatchlings until they become big enough to fend for themselves in the wild. Then, with the help of experts, she releases them. Along the way, she learns about these unique animals and that she has made an important contribution to their survival. The For Creative Minds' section includes terrapin fun facts; where in the world are terrapins?; and a turtle habitat craft. Additional Teaching Activities, Interactive Quizzes, and Audiobooks are available for free on Sylvan Dell Publishing's website.

Turtles In My Sandbox was vetted for scientific accuracy by educators at the Terrapin Institute, the Department of Biology at the University of Florida, and the Department of Biological Sciences at Ohio University.
