Sea Turtle Hatchlings

From the Series Water Babies

Deep beneath the sand on a warm, tropical beach, a little sea turtle breaks out of its egg, crawls up through the sand, and emerges into the world. The ocean is just a few feet away, but numerous predators are waiting for the hatchling and its siblings to make their run to the ocean. So begins the life of a green sea turtle! In this coming-of-age introduction to these marine reptiles, readers will learn how mother turtles bury their eggs on beaches and then return to the ocean. The little hatchlings, with no parent to protect them, eventually have to leave their nests and make a danger-filled dash to the ocean. Then, these water babies must fend for themselves out at sea, finding food and avoiding enemies until they grow to become one of the largest reptiles on Earth. The colorful interior spreads and gorgeous photos of sea turtle hatchlings are sure to delight emergent readers. Sea Turtle Hatchlings is part of Bearport’s Water Babies series.
