Book Description

Did you know that turtles have been around since the time of dinosaurs? Or that pictures of turtles have been found on ancient cave walls? Have you ever seen a turtle that protects itself by being so stinky that other animals don't try to eat it? What about the turtle that uses a flap in its mouth as a fishing lure?

Find out about these turtles and more in WHY ARE TURTLES SO CRAZY AWESOME?

Over 40 pages with many amazing photos of turtles in action!

Editorial Reviews

Review

What an exciting fun way to learn! Even I learned things about turtles I didn't know. Turtles are wondrous creatures to say the least but to learn that they can live to be one hundred years old, don't have teeth, can lay from one egg to one hundred eggs, can weigh hundreds of pounds...WOW! The photographs are fantastic and educational. I recommend this book for ages 5-12.

Cute booklet for kids - it does not offer really a lot of information, but has lovely photographs quite good looking on the screen, and thus should be visually appealing and entertaining to small children.

I checked out this title based on the cover alone. The picture of the turtle doing a disco pose is priceless. Filled with great pictures, this is great for children as well as adults who enjoy a whimsical view of turtles, tons of fun.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Why Are Turtles So Crazy Awesome? is a book that probably boys between the ages of 8-10 would like. It gives some facts that would also catch their attention besides the different types of turtles mentioned in the book.
