Desert Box Turtle Tom is as shy as can be / Even when his critter friends plan a surprise birthday party full of glee.

Poor Tom yearns to sing his heart out
/ But he has to learn to outshine his doubt.

When Tom begins to sing in a nervous voice / All of his friends are enamored and rejoice!

Could standing in the spotlight / Help Tom conquer his stage fright?

Join Tom and the rest of the desert critters / In facing fears and overcoming jitters!

About the Author

Rachel McGuire Bate has written two children’s books, Desert Bliss, a finalist in the Indie Excellence Book Awards and Best Book Awards, and Turquoise Tail. Her third book, Santa Fe Tom, once again features critters of the New Mexico desert, a passion of her love of nature and her home. Every summer a wild desert box turtle visits her backyard, which gave her the inspiration to write Santa Fe Tom. As a first-grade teacher, she also wrote this story for all children to help them face their fears and overcome shyness.
