Get your flippers on three beautiful books about turtles

Here's how you can win a set of three picture books all about these turtle-y inspiring sea creatures.

Did you know that some turtles can live for around 200 years? Or that whilst they spend their lives in water, they lay their eggs on land?

There's so much to learn about these beautiful, majestic animals. Today, many species of turtle are classified as endangered, and their lives are put at risk by increasing plastic pollution and climate change. Together, we may be able to help protect them and other forms of marine wildlife.

We've got three beautiful picture books celebrating these fabulous reptiles to give away, including:

  • Turtle Rescue by Xuan Le and Jonny Marx - Flora and Fauna are two explorers on a mission to solve the mysterious disappearance of the turtles that lay their eggs on the sandy beach.
  • Little Turtle and the Sea by Becky David and Jennie Poh - this gentle story follows Little Turtle as she breaks free from her egg and begins her journey to the sea, watching the ocean environment change around her as she grows up and lays eggs of her own.
  • Above and Below: Sea and Shore by Harriet Evans and Hannah Bailey - a beautiful lift-the-flap book celebrating ocean habitats from the seaside to the darkest depths.

For the chance to win all three books, simply answer the question below and leave your details by the closing date of 11pm on Monday 21 June 2021.
