Being a sea turtle takes patience and pluck, as young readers learn in this enchanting board book. A companion to Saffy, which featured a baby giraffe, this book introduces Totty, the smallest of all the sea turtle babies and the last one to hatch. His brothers and sisters are already far down the beach, crawling toward the sea. As they get smaller and smaller, Totty redoubles his efforts to catch up. But it seems impossible! Will Totty find a way? Award-winning artist Paola Opal’s charming artwork makes Totty an instant friend to little readers, and the simple, rhythmic text makes the book one they’ll return to again and again

first saw this book in a book catalog at our local independent toy store and I loved he illustrations. So, finally I bought this weekend and tested it out on the kiddos. Thumbs up! I enjoy the book’s rounded edges and sturdy pages as well as the simple but cute message. I am keeping them in the car for long rides.
We are giving them away as a set to one of our blog readers!
