I really enjoyed reading this book! It was very touching and brought back memories of my own family's Christmas traditions. I will definitly read it to my own children when they are older and add it to our collection of special books. It's wonderfully written and illustrated.

For this story, the writer is so descriptive, you can feel yourself on the porch, cracking pecans! This is an endearing story of how a grandmother demonstrates her love for her family every Christmas by making turtles. The book even includes a recipe for homemade turtles!

Christmas Turtles takes you back to the wonderful smells, sights, and sounds of Grandma's kitchen. I was immediately transported back to the warmth and love my Grandma shared with me through her cooking.

I was so pleased with the reading Sara Ann recently did, that I bought 4 copies of her book. I want all my granddaughters to have a copy - you should too!

We just got a copy at a book signing that author Sara Ann Denson had for my daughter's Brownie troop. We love this book. We plan to read it several more times before Christmas.

This is a wonderful story of family tradition and a rich heritage. As you read it, it brings to mind your own memories of special things and times. It is a captivating story of the unconditional love and affection of a grandmother for her grandchildren. There is a refreshing sense of selflessness depicted in the grandmother's simple gift. This book is a wonderful addition to our Christmas library that displays what true giving is and is not.
