A baby loggerhead turtle, no bigger than a bottle cap, lives so far out to sea that “land is only a memory.” She swims and survives, returning 30 years later to the beach where she was hatched to lay her own eggs. A compelling, lyrical narrative gives an account of her life and is accompanied by realistic watercolor paintings and by informative text in smaller typeface that provides supplementary information. (Ages 3–7)
