Book: Ready. Set...Hatch! by Jeunanne Atkins
"Oh Miss....this sand is soft"
"Miss we going to read about turtles?"
The collage I used for Hatch was definitely a hit with the kids and so was the story. The children were in awe that turtles come all the way to Trinidad to lay their eggs and that the person who wrote the book lives in Trinidad.
Ready, Set, Hatch is definitely book that should be in your book collection. This book tells the story of the leather back turtle's migration to Caribbean to lay it's eggs in such a simple way, that children of any age are sure to love it! It also shows the importance of cooperation and team work, lessons I am sure we desire for our children to learn.
After completing a simple worksheet, so simple that my older kids asked for "the big kids worksheet please" , :) the children created their own collage for the story!
