Overview

Encouraging exploration, discovery, and a sense of wonder, this brightly illustrated, poetic tale recounts the story of two turtles that live in a glass tank. One turtle is adventurous and enjoys visiting the outside world. The other turtle is shy and afraid of what lies beyond the tank walls, so he hides in his shell when the giant hand approaches. This story inspires children to discover all their worlds together, including the world outside and the world at home. Not only does this book offer up valuable lessons on exploration and all that comes from it, but it is also a vehicle to introduce children to haiku poetry, an alternate form of storytelling. For children in grades K to 5.
