Unwrapping Some Illustrations
The tradition in the turtle world for a long time was the little turtles climbed on top of the big turtles so they could eat the freshest fruit from the top of the bushes. The poor big turtles were left the sour and rotten berries that had fallen on the ground. YUK!
Little turtle hears the feelings of the big turtles and recognizes the injustice of it all and raises the question would it be hard for everyone to share and enjoy the fresh fruit?
Together both big and small hatch a plan to work together to change that old tradition and celebrate that EVERYONE can enjoy the fruits of their labour.
The colourful expressive illustrations are wonderful and the positive, problem solving message is great. I love the book and highly recommend it.
