The turtle in this story will take us on a journey necessary for the survival of her species. With her, we will cross the ocean until we reach the beach where she will lay her eggs. From her efforts, many new little turtles will grow up and continue the cycle begun by their mother. This is a beautiful and poetic story that will help readers understand the importance of protecting endangered species. This beautifully illustrated hardbound edition is by one of the most important children’s authors of Puerto Rico. Also by Lázaro León in Alfaguara: La niña y la estrella and El mejor es mi papá.
