Sea Turtles: 03/15/08
Sean has been learning some basic biology at school and that has lead to some interesting conversations in the car about frogs, turtles, snakes, butterflies and birds. Last month we checked out two books to answer some of his questions: Frogs and Sea Turtles.
Sea Turtles by Emilie U. Lepthien is a good introduction to sea turtles. It has some stunning photography to accompany the text. Like Frogs, the book covers the life cycle of the sea turtle, it's anatomy, habitat, different species, and how humans are a threat to sea turtles.
Of the two books, Sean preferred Frogs but I liked Sea Turtles better. The book reminded me of the one time I was lucky enough to actually swim with some in the waters off Maui.
LOL - Like you, my vote would be for sea turtles. We watched them swimming about in the ocean for ages when we visited Hawaii last year. We don't have them down here since our water isn't warm enough."
We don't have them here in California either. Our ocean current comes down from Alaska. So like your home, the water is too cold.
Thanks for the comment. "
