Little Turtle and the Sea by Becky Davies & Jennie Poh

It’s Story Book Sunday where I review a children’s picture book with my two daughters and this week we’ve been reading Little Turtle and the Sea together 🥰


Little Turtle loves the ocean with her whole heart. As the years pass, she repeats an incredible journey across the world to the beautiful coral reefs. 

 But one day she finds that plastic has invaded her ocean. Could Turtle’s journey be over forever?

Our Thoughts


This is a beautiful looking, huge, hardback book.  A gorgeous turtle adorns the cover and the muted blues and greens are so pretty to look at.


Each of the pages in this book is delightfully illustrated; the Littles thoroughly enjoyed drinking in and discussing each ocean scene and pointing out various, familiar plants and sea creatures.


The narrative itself is well pitched to tell this serious story which explores the problem of plastic in the ocean, and the challenges facing marine life. This is a very topical story and I could see that the Littles understood the plastic problem and were very keen to further discuss this at the end of the story.  This was assisted hugely by the helpful information pages at the end of the book – so much to talk about!


Beautifully illustrated and imparting a hugely important message; Little Turtle and the Sea is a fantastic picture book for all young children.


Little Turtle and the Sea is out now in hardcover and you can buy it here and our thanks go to Little Tiger Books for our review copy.


Hope you all have a lovely Sunday!

Until next time!
