A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

Touching and funny, Turtle and Me captures the importance of a special toy and explores why such a thing shouldn’t be given up lightly! A little boy and his soft toy have been inseparable since birth; Turtle has had many accidents but a lot of washing and stitching have kept him going through thick and thin. But, when are you too old to need such a toy? The gentle resolution to this story will reassure all young readers!

A charming tale about the adventures a little boy has with his cuddly toy turtle. Turtle gets covered in spaghetti, chewed by a puppy, and ripped in a tug of war, but despite all of this the little boy still loves him. But will this love last forever?
