Turtle tide : the ways of sea turtles by Stephen R Swinburne( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the life cycle of the sea turtle, from the mother depositing her eggs in the sand of the beach, to how the little hatchlings must fight numerous odds to make it to the ocean and survive obstacles to grow into adult turtles. A mother turtle swims to shore. She digs a hole in a dune where she lays one hundred eggs. Following her instinct, she covers the eggs with sand and slowly makes her way back to sea. What happens next, from eggs to hatchlings, is one of the most extraordinary occurrences in nature. For the eggs provide food for other animals, and the eggs that survive produce hatchlings that, again, provide food for birds and crabs. Even those hatchlings that make it to the ocean face an uncertain future. Together, lyrical text and dramatic paintings give young readers an understanding of how turtles give birth and how the young fight for survival
