Little Turtle and the Changing Sea Book Cover

The 2021 Giverny Award winner is the 32-page children's science storybook Little Turtle and the Changing Sea by author Becky Davies and illustrator Jennie Poh. The book is published by Tiger Tales of Wilton, Connecticut (2020). Congratulations!

The Giverny Award is administered by the 15° Laboratory™, a visual cognition research and development laboratory for improving biological and botanical learning.

Little Turtle and the Changing Sea follows the story of Little Turtle and her ocean home. The story and vivid illustrations allow readers to swim alongside Little Turtle as she tours her colorful ocean environment that becomes polluted, over time, only to be restored again through hard work and friendship.

You can enjoy a reading of the book by Lori Neuenfeldt, Gallery Coordinator in the Department of Art, during her "Story Time in the Gallery" series on YouTube, and the book can be purchased at local bookstores, including the Barnes and Noble on the Mississippi State University Campus.
