The Lovereading4Kids comment

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!
