PreSchool-Grade 2-Brilliant, full-page photographs and a concise, large-print text perfectly complement one another in this simple presentation. Hirschi conveys basic facts in a direct, lively manner that provides immediacy. Readers will feel as though they are following a box turtle as she eats, encounters a variety of animals, and pulls into her shell when threatened. Kuhn's full-color photographs are exceptionally clear and display a wide range of this gentle creature's physical characteristics and behavior. An afterword provides background information for adults or older readers, and encourages the protection of habitats for all wildlife. Fine nonfiction that can be used as a companion to William George's Box Turtle at Long Pond (Greenwillow, 1989).

Ages 5-8. Up with the sun, an eastern box turtle proceeds through the day, finding food and avoiding dangers ranging from bobcats to boot-clad human walkers. Bright, clear color photographs place the viewer close to the turtle and to common objects, such as toads and flowers. The text covers such often forgotten subjects as how an upside down turtle rights itself, but although it covers hibernation, it does not tell how turtles sleep. A final page discusses protecting wild turtles. Mary Harris Veeder
