Puteri Tioman – The Green Tur­tle

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Culture -

A kid can never have too many won­der­fully il­lus­trated pic­ture books and if the sub­ject is about an an­i­mal, par­tic­u­larly an en­dan­gered one, that’s all the bet­ter. This book re­volves around the life cy­cle of a green tur­tle from its in­cep­tion (be pre­pared to ex­plain the world ‘mate’), to it hatch­ing and ven­tur­ing out into the sea, to be­com­ing an adult and en­coun­ter­ing all the ter­ri­ble things that en­dan­ger a seaa tur­tle’s life. The aim is to ed­u­cate with facts more than en­ter­tain, which is why this book is a good read – it can’t all be uni­corns and glit­ter. The last few pages fo­cus on tur­tle facts, what we can do to help, and how to live the 3Rs – Re­duce, Reuse, Re­cy­cle. The il­lus­tra­tions are lovely and by the end of the story, ‘Puteri Tioman’ will be your kid’s favouriteite tur­tle.
