Aquatic Turtles is an excellent introduction to turtles and terrapins. It deals with both caring for turtles and terrapins as pets, and their lives in the wild. The book is geared to an American readership, but it is interesting for British readers to learn about American wildlife. The photos are especially good, the book is clearly written, and is very accessible to older children as well as to adults. This is a book that is likely to appeal to anyone interested in exotic wildlife, as well as people wanting to know how to care for a pet turtle, because of the information the book gives on a wide range of species of aquatic turtles, including painted turtles and red-eared sliders.
