Explore all four seasons with this charming—and patient!—turtle family, from the first blooms of spring and scorching sun of summer to the crisp leaves of fall and fat snowflakes of winter. Award-winning author-artist Matt Phelan has created a rewarding celebration of the seasons for the youngest child. Fans of Anna Dewdney and Tad Hills will want to go on this journey again and again.
Turtle walk. Nice and slow. Here we go.
Spring blooms and a turtle family is on the move. Slow and steady, they travel up, up, up, the gentle hill through all four seasons—brought to vivid life in bright watercolor paintings. Where are they going? To the top of the sledding hill. And when they get there—pop!—they turn their shells into sleds and slide back down the hill to a well-deserved winter’s rest.
Matt Phelan’s simple, rhythmic text is filled with repetition and his soft, colorful watercolor artwork makes Turtle Walk a timeless choice. The joyful journey and gentle rewarding surprise will have the youngest children asking to read it again and again.
