Family Friendly Spotlight: SEA TURTLES: Our Amazing World Series by Kay de Silva

Sea Turtles by Kay de SilvaI’m stepping out of my usual niche today to promote a nice children’s book that I recently purchased on  SEA TURTLES by Kay de Silva.  What attracted me to this children’s e-book was the beautiful photograph cover and the fact that my nephew loved turtles as a young boy and still has a special interest in them today.  The book has detailed, color photograph images of various types of sea turtles.  These images translated well into my kindle fire and page images did not split like they do in some children’s e-books.  This book covers basic anatomy, habitat, migration, breathing, eating habits, social life, and much more.  All explanations are at mid-level elementary, and offer short segments to hold the attention.  Even though this was way below my normal reading level, I found that I enjoyed learning about the Green Sea Turtles, Hawksbill Sea Turtles, Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles, Loggerhead Sea Turtles, Leatherback Sea Turtles, and Olive Ridley Sea Turtles.  Now that I’ve learned some basic information about these wonderful creatures, I understand my nephew’s fascination with them.  Oh, the conversations we could have had if I had read this sooner!  So, I recommend this book along with others in this series to encourage a love and respect for nature’s creatures in your child.  There are books on Horses, Dolphins, Whales, Marsupials, Penguins, Tigers, Sharks and even Dinosaurs! So if you have a child in your life with an inquisitive mind, this is a great series for them to read;  and my personal recommendation would be to read the books together and use it as an opportunity to build a stronger relationship with your child.  Enjoy!
