Additional Notes

From The Publisher*This fact-filled, colorful book looks at the amazing world of turtles.
In simple yet informative language, A Place for Turtles provides an intriguing look at turtles and the ecosystems that support their survival. Bond's stunning, realistic paintings depict a variety of turtles and their environments. Stewart also introduces readers to the ways human action or inaction can affect turtle populations, and offers a list of things they can do to help protect turtles in their own communities.
