I really liked the double meaning in this book. The book is titled “Every Turtle Counts” but it could also be “Every Person Counts.” Mimi never gives up on a frozen turtle she finds on the beach even though adults around her are telling her it’s dead and to get rid of it. Mimi’s caring mom listens to what Mimi is saying and calls the Audubon Society to help. Mimi is autistic and has trouble with people being close to her and also has trouble talking, but the book explains it all in a very kid-friendly way. The illustrations are wonderful and really add to the telling of the story. I like the message in the book about how caring for an animal can help people (disabled or not). Besides the great story, I learned a lot about Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles! I never heard of them before. There is an author’s not in the back of the book to explain about the turtles even more. The migration of the turtles is amazing! *NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

An incredibly touching story that will resonate strongly with parents whose children are diagnosed on the autism spectrum. New Englanders will also appreciate the gorgeous illustrations of beach scenes on Cape Cod, where the book takes place. As children with disabilities are increasingly prevalent in classrooms, it's important to spread the message to other students that children who have disabilities should not be defined by them. Sara's book illustrates this point subtly and beautifully.
