Melissa Stewart's lively text outlines our responsibility to conserve their natural environment. This high-interest book also offers an interactive experience to boost awareness of these adorable creatures. SEA TURTLES Who could resist celebrating sea turtles? They may seem like lazy ocean reptiles drifting with the oceans' currents, but they are actually long-distance swimmers that spend their entire lives searching for food and a mate. What's more, they come with their own built-in GPS, returning to the exact beach where they were born to lay their own eggs. GREAT MIGRATIONS: WHALES Over the course of their 70-year lifespan, sperm whales will easily travel the circumference of the Earth in search of food and the need to breed and find a mate. Males will travel as far north as the Bering Sea and as far south as Antarctica in order to find enough food to sustain their ways of live-up to 700 squid a day! Along the way, these massive beasts battle 30-feet-long giant squids, and each other, to sustain their ways of life. AT THE BEACH: Take a stroll along the beach. What do you see? Young readers will learn all about the beach and the animals that call it home in this fun pre-reader. Through text features such as the vocabulary tree and the wrap-up activity, kids will be introduced to new words and concepts. CORAL REEFS: In this level 2 reader, young readers explore the amazing underwater world of coral reefs. WEIRD SEA CREATURES: Did you know that the deep-sea anglerfish has a glowing fishing rod attached to its body, or that the barreleye fish has a see-through head? See these wacky creatures and more!
