New on the Shelf: Jellies in the Belly: a sea turtle’s Atlantic adventure by Carol McDougall
Swim far sea turtle, swim far…
Boulder Books is proud to announce Jellies in the Belly: a sea turtle’s Atlantic adventure, a new children’s book by award-winning author and illustrator Carol McDougall.
Join Lally the leatherback sea turtle from her birth on a tropical beach to her long migration north and then back again. During her journey, Lally protects fish populations by feeding on jellyfish—a leatherback delicacy!
During Lally’s journey we learn about the dangers facing sea turtles, many of which are created by people. But we are also reminded of how amazing and special sea turtles are.
Jellies in the Belly also includes a step-by-step instructional guide on creating ink and watercolour leatherback images to enhance learning, creativity, and fun.
This book will appeal to children aged 5-9.
