Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
The illustrations make this book. Many children and adults love turtles and Thurman, the turtle, is cute. The colors are vibrant, clever, and clear. The foreword indicates that the story will be about the carbon footprint we all make by living on the earth. It isn't as much about the carbon footprint as it is about responsible choices that everyone can make especially when it comes to litter. Thurman decides it's time to take action and make a difference in the world. The vocabulary is rich with words such as undeterred and determined. Young readers enjoy learning challenging words and as a parent and grandparent I love reading them to a child. Mrs. Thornberry, the elementary science teacher, is able to explain that the carbon produced by factories and automobiles can be combated by the trees she and the class are planting. That is all there is about the carbon footprint. Thurman returns home, a hero, for inspiring people to pick up trash. Thurman is courageous and that may help convince young readers to be courageous when faced with insurmountable obstacles. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell
