The I Love Turtles story teaches kids about the dangers of litter in our seas – especially old deflated balloons, which actually look like food to sea turtles and are of course very bad for them to eat. Ideal as a first reader, with an important message about caring for our oceans and our Earth!
The book’s interactive dialogue allows children to become a part of the story, while learning about environmental responsibility in a fun, entertaining way.
I Love Turtles also includes activities alongside the story:
- "Brain Tickles": Counting, finding hidden shapes, naming colours etc.
- "Growing Big & Strong": Teaches about the lifecycle of a turtle
- "Where Do I Belong": Teaches about different types of animals; mammals, fish, reptiles and birds
By purchasing the I Love Turtles book, you are contributing towards turtle rehabilitation at Cape Town’s much-loved Two Oceans Aquarium.
Illustrations and story by Marguerite Venter; also available in Afrikaans as Ek is Lief vir Seeskilpaaie.
