We've created a totally fun list of the best kids books about turtles and tortoises. Aren't these fascinating creatures? Getting a peek into the lives of turtles as they scamper to survive the journey from nest to water is inspiring, and it never gets old to learn about the long life that some tortoises live -- up to 250 years old! As you can see there is a lot to learn. Not only are children's books fun that have a turtle as a character in the story, like Franklin, but imagine what we can learn in the non-fiction books about real tortoises, like Owen. Also on the list is a fun finger puppet book called "Little Sea Turtle" for our youngest friends. If you are searching for a turtle book for preschoolers, "I'll Follow the Moon" has beautiful watercolor illustrations that take us through the journey of a tiny turtle finding his way to the sea. It is one all ages will enjoy. Included in our list of children's books about turtles and tortoises are board books for the youngest readers, ages 0-2, picture books for kids 3-6 years old, and chapter books for those who are 7-10 years old. Enjoy and let us know what books you would add to the list!
