The Box Turtle


This product is unavailable


"In Roeder's skillful hands, the little box turtle offers an inarguable message about the power of friendship and the importance of working with what one has." --Publishers Weekly

"Roeder renders an adorable, rosy-cheeked (all four cheeks, when he's going about shell-free) Terrance in colorful pencil and acrylics, bringing the cute along with plenty of laughs . . . A sweet, affirming message brings things together in the end." --Booklist

"Shelled or not, though, Terrance is an appealing figure, with gentle lines, a soft green color, and a cute little booty. Terrance's makeover of his box may inspire youngsters to want to create a 'shell' for themselves, so have a few cardboard boxes and markers on hand for crafty turtle enthusiasts." --BCCB

"This suggested general purchase supports social-emotional learning with confidence building through awareness of the character's uniqueness and ability to think 'out of the box.'" --School Library Journal
