Brenda Z. Guiberson’s Into the Sea follows the fragile life cycle of an endangered sea turtle in a children’s picture book story gorgeously illustrated by Alix Berenzy.
From the moment it hatches from its shell through its journey across an ocean filled with wonders and dangers to its return to the beach where it was born to lay its own eggs, a female sea turtle’s life is one of survival.

Praise for Into the Sea
“Let Into the Sea touch young readers with a sense of place and sensitivity for this gentle creature of the sea.” —School Library Journal, starred review
“A perfect choice for primary oceanography or endangered species units, this has a strong-enough story to use as a read-aloud as well.” —Booklist
“In Brenda Guiberson's sensitive hands, the story flows as freely as the currents that carry the turtle though the shallows and open seas. The variety of Alix Berenzy's pictures, from the eye-popping colors of a coral reef to the dappled light on an endless bed of grass, brings surprise with every spread.” —The Five Owls
