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?

Review by Stacey

Turtle travelled from where she was born across the ocean to her new home where she lived for many years until it was time for her to return to her birthplace.

She loved the ocean and all the pretty sights, colours, and friends she met on her swims. Then one day that changed when strange objects arrived. They didn’t look friendly, they looked scary. The ocean was losing its bright colours. These strange items were plastic floating in the water.

One day Turtle got too close to some of the plastic and now she is stuck on the ocean floor trapped. What can she do? Will she be saved?

Little Turtle and the Sea is a beautiful picture book that teaches young children about the dangers of plastic in the seas and oceans. It shows them exactly what can happen to the animals in the water when the plastic is floating in their homes and educates the reader on how dangerous plastic is for the animals.

The book has some amazing illustrations that capture the story and what it represents perfectly. I love how they change from bright, colourful pictures to dull, darker images when the plastic appears giving a visual indicator to children that plastic in the water is bad.

The story is powerful and yet is a lovely, sweet read too. I can see it capturing children’s hearts and making them more aware of where their rubbish goes. Today there are a lot of books on plastic waste and plastic in the oceans and I really hope that the future generation grows up with the knowledge, understanding, and also the know-how to stop this from happening and save marine life from being hurt or killed.
