Item description for Sea Turtles: Ocean Nomads by Mary M. Cerullo...

On a deserted tropical beach, a mysterious saucer-shaped being emerges from the ocean: It's a mother sea turtle lumbering up the beach to lay her eggs. Nearby, a group of hatchlings race toward the sea. These are some of the fascinating sea turtles we will meet in this exquisitely photographed book. Text and photographs help answer some questions that have been puzzling researchers for years: Do they migrate? Where do young sea turtles spend their early years? What can we do to help these creatures survive? This is a beautiful addition to children's nature books by the author and photographer of Sharks, of which The Horn Book said: "Full-color, close-up photographs . . . well-organized, well-written text."
