The Endangered North American Turtle Series

Each of these three, 8 ˝" by 11," 96 page, perfect bound books, printed totally on recycled paper, have a common purpose: First, to tell a good story, enhanced by colorful illustrations, that elementary school age children can come back to again and again, learning more at each reading. The second purpose is to provide through each book’s story, illustrated glossary, and life history section, compelling information about a unique species of North American turtle. All of the species in the series suffer from habitat destruction, collection for food or for the illegal pet trade, and diminishing populations in the wild.
