Review

The text addresses readers directly, while seamlessly weaving facts into the story...By the time Loggerhead's hatchlings race for their lives across the beach, under threat of attack, readers will be emotionally invested in their pligh—a sure sign of the accomplished storytelling.
—Publishers Weekly

Simple, lyrical words and bright, acrylic double-page pictures convery the astonishing facts about the Loggerhead sea turtle...without condescension, this tells a powerful nature story for a young audience.
—Booklist

This beautifully designed story of a loggerhead sea turtle uses an oversized format and glorious acrylic paintings for a work that is both entertaining and informative...Recommended for school and public library collections.
—Kirkus Reviews

Broadly sketched in good language and pictures for read-aloud sharing, Davies's title will be enjoyed as a glimpse into the ways of the remarkable giant sea turtles.
—School Library Journal

Davies is in fine form with an informative narrative that is immediate and loving...until young listeners can paddle through the text on their own, expect calls for encore readings.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, The

This beautifully illustrated book follows a loggerhead turtle from her early years as a baby in the sea to when, as a full-grown sea turtle, she climbs up the beach to dig a nest and lay her eggs.
—Your Big Backyard, featured as “Book of the Month”
