About the Book:
The Turtle’s Shell tells the story of Tobi, a smart turtle who thinks he can get away with deceiving his friends. He ends up learning a few shell cracking lessons. This friendly, easy-to-read book shows children how our everyday actions and decisions always have consequences. This story also draws attention to the nuggets of wisdom embedded in African cultural stories which can be emulated by any child whatever their racial background.
What an interesting story. I love story’s that are written with the intent to teach a child some valuable lesson. As a parent I tend to be drawn toward those types of books. My daughter and I shared this story together and she was very excited to color the pages inside the book. I thought this was a fun way to keep children engaged. There is a lot of wording so the book would be better suited for children who are used to sitting and listening to longer stories. This was a fun book to add to our collection.
