With visually stunning illustrations and poetic writing, popular Japanese illustrator, Mamoru Suzuki, takes us on a journey to the ocean to witness the life of a sea turtle.
On a quiet summer night, at a deserted beach, something emerges from the sea. It turns out to be a mother sea turtle who came ashore to lay her eggs.
There it is! There it is! The baby turtles are hatching. They waved their tiny flippers and slowly crawled back towards the sea to start their amazing 20,000km journey.
This is a great book to learn about the life cycle of a sea turtle, and how they overcome the obstacles they encounter the vast ocean, including many of which that were created by humans.
