Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Upon arriving at the seashore, Turtle and Snake notice a sign for a sand-castle contest and decide to enter it. They build one, and then go surfing. When they come back, their construction is gone. They build a second time, and even a third time with the help of assorted friends in order to meet the deadline. Snake and Turtle have personality and their story weaves a simple message of friendship and the value of persistence and teamwork. Brightly colored, simple drawings capture the pleasure of this fun-in-the-sun day at the beach and give visual clues for words like umbrella, pails, shovels, and surfboards. Repetition ("dig, dig, dig" and "pat, pat, pat") provides practice for simple words, and the three o'clock deadline and clock illustrations allow youngsters to hone their time-telling skills. This sixth story about Turtle and Snake will be a hit with those who already know and love these friends, and is sure to make them some new fans. It's difficult to find easy-to-read books that have charm and a real story, and this one does.-Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
