"Carolina's Story: Sea Turtles Get Sick, Too!" is the photographic journal of Carolina, a critically ill loggerhead sea turtle, as she is nursed back to health at the Sea Turtle Hospital of the South Carolina Aquarium. Just like hospitalized children, Carolina experiences a variety of emotions and procedures during her care and recovery process.
When she first arrives at the hospital, she is too sick, weak, and confused to understand what is happening. She has blood drawn, x-rays taken, gets shots and is hydrated through an IV just as ill children may be.
Join her as she interacts with her many caregivers and her sick or injured roommate turtles and then celebrate the happy day she is released back into the open ocean--a healthy and happy turtle.
An educational "For Creative Minds" supplement in the back of the book includes teaching trivia, conservation issues, a make-your-own sea turtle craft, and sea turtle math games. "Learning Links" and "Teaching Activities" are also available on the Sylvan Dell website, so that educators can use the books even more easily in their lessons. [via]
