Voyage of Turtle Rex by Kurt Cyrus: Books Ramblings

The Voyage of Turtle RexThe Voyage of Turtle Rex by Kurt Cyrus
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book submerses the reader in the life cycle of Archelon, a giant sea turtle associated with the Cretaceous Period in a series of rhyming couplets. The artwork throughout the book pulls the reader into a shallow sea over North America where Archelon lived.

Young readers may well be surprised by the perspectives offered in the illustrations when they see dinosaurs seem small next to a sea turtle. This book would be great to add depth to a dinosaur unit or to pair with movie clips of turtles today as they trace the path from egg to sea and back again.
