A turtle hatches from her egg and immediately her life is in danger – we know that has always been that way but how have humans made the dangers even more numerous?
Tilly’s Reef Adventure by Rhonda N. Garward is a wonderful book – both illustrations and story engage young children from start to finish and gives them so many different ideas for questions they can ask.
The main character in this story is Tilly, and she is a new turtle, born with an instinct to survive.
She escapes from crabs, birds and barracudas but it is the one thing that she wasn’t prepared for that nearly kills her – a plastic bag!
Luckily for her there are some caring humans around who help her out of the bag as they continue to pick up rubbish along the beach.
