Turtle Gliding

Turtle Gliding is a short, fantasy story about a young girl who wonders what it would be like to meet a sea turtle. In her mind, they meet and travel to an island where she builds a sand castle. When her turtle friend leaves, she wonders if she will come back for her. What happens next? Read the book to find out. After the story, there are two full pages of educational information about the seven sea turtles and their endangerment levels, followed by a glossary page for beginning readers. Preschool age through second graders enjoy this book so much, they want it read to them or read it by themselves over and over! Denise Owen was born and raised in Sanford, North Carolina, but spent all of her summers in Oak Island (formerly known as Long Beach). There, she became a long-time fan of the Loggerhead Sea Turtle. Ms. Owen gets her writing inspiration from real life events, and since age eleven, has written over 200 poems. She has a Masters Degree in Social Work, is married and has two book-loving children. The Illustrator, Jo Wicker, has a degree in Drafting and Design, having worked many years in the field. She is currently a Licensed Practical Nurse, enjoying retirement, volunteering, painting, cooking, gardening, hiking, and jewelry and soap making in the Asheville, NC area.
