Tracks in the Sand

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


On a moonlit beach, a large creature crawls out of the waves. Though she lives in the ocean, she must struggle onto land to dig a nest. Her eggs are left behind, buried under a few inches of sand. The loggerhead sea turtle is an ancient species that has endured for millions of years. Realistic illustrations capture the mother, eggs, and hatchlings in dramatic detail. 

The print edition was given a starred review by Booklist:
“An excellent resource for introducing sea turtles and the beauty and order of the natural world.”

Kirkus Reviews: 
“Known for her lighthearted treatments of a variety of subjects…Leedy takes a more direct look at sea turtles…Quiet and appealing.”

Tracks in the Sand (print edition) was named an Outstanding Science Trade Book by the National Science Teachers Association.

Join popular children's author-illustrator Loreen Leedy and become a witness to the sea turtle's amazing life cycle story.
