There is something for children of every age group. Older children can appreciate more of the story and what that message had to say in addition to the illustrations. Meanwhile, younger children who are not yet able to grasp the concept of carbon footprint can enjoy the illustrations, which follow the story quite well. RedOrbit.com
A delightful story that uses whimsical animal characters and engaging art to show younger readers that everyone can make a difference, no matter how small! Sharon Martin, Newspapers in Education Mgr, the Detroit Free Press
Children’s author Artie Knapp has created a book with expressive characters (animal and human) and brightly colored illustrations. Young readers try to identify potentially hazardous litter (plastic rings, sharp metal lids) cleverly depicted in the illustrations. Knapp delivers a compelling message about the power of an individual’s actions while raising awareness of environmental issues such as carbon footprints and recycling. Sure to inspire budding environmentalists (preschool through 3rd grade), and a wonderful read aloud. Richard Kujawski, Managing Editor, Living Green Magazine
A determined turtle named Thurman shows us all that following your heart and doing what you believe in, no matter what others say, can make a difference.
