Explore coral reefs to study green sea turtles in this beautiful nonfiction field guide for kids.

You might know that green sea turtles have incredible shells, but there's so much more to learn about these underwater marvels! Turn the pages to find out how green sea turtles keep seagrass beds healthy by "mowing" them, and how some species of fish like to hitch a ride on their shells. You'll also witness the amazing egg hatching frenzy that occurs--when baby turtles have to make a mad dash from the beach to the safety of the sea. Filled with simple science and plenty of animal facts, this book also looks at the conservation challenges these endangered animals face due to climate change, poaching, and plastic pollution.

Written by marine biologist Carlee Jackson and featuring stunning illustrations by Daniel Rieley, Green Sea Turtle (Young Zoologist) is part of an exciting series of animal books from Neon Squid aiming to inspire the next generation of biologists and conservationists.

Also available: Humpback Whale, Giant Panda, African Elephant, Emperor Penguin, Koala, Honey Bee

About this Author

Daniel Rieley is a freelance illustrator based in London, UK.

"A delightful, illustrated field guide for young readers. In spreads with realistic color drawings, information is paced out through blocks of text paired with images, spacing tidbits throughout... an inspiring guide for budding scientists and those with a special interest in animals. Highly recommended and has great value in library collections, especially where schools have STEM programs focused on conservation." --SLJ

Praise for the Young Zoologist series:
"What makes this series stand out is that the illustrations, bite-sized facts, and clear labels make it easy for the youngest of readers to navigate the text and absorb the information there." -- Booklist

"The well-illustrated Young Zoologist series guides readers through the lives and notable features of the spotlighted animals... prepares the young zoologist (aka the reader) for their upcoming adventure in the field, laying out tools necessary for investigating the animal. The bright, semi-realistic artwork could hold these titles on its own, but the easily digestible facts regarding life cycle, behavior, and conservation make the volumes well rounded. Each work is pragmatic in addressing the challenges these creatures face while helping aspiring zoologists learn ways to protect animals and their environments." --Booklist
