Preview An excerpt from Anny The Sea Turtle:
“Once upon a time there was a sea turtle named Anny. She had a big shell and a great sense of humor. She was young and pretty, and she swam with other turtles in the great ocean. She had a good time. Anny faced many dangers because sea turtles live in the water where there are lots of other creaturas, and they have to protect themselves.”
In Spanish: “Había una vez una tortuga llamada Anny de gran caparazón y un sentido del humor admirable. Era joven y atractiva. Nadaba junto con otras tortugas en el gran océano. Se divertia. Anny se enfrentaba a muchos peligros porque las tortugas marinas viven en agua donde hay otras criaturas y tienen que protegerse de algunos de ellas.”
