Long ago, Sandy Gingras read "The Tortoise and the Hare," a fable that teaches "slow and steady wins the race." But she didn't learn the lesson! Instead she lived the race of hurry-up and do-it-all every day. And it was tiring. But now, Gingras presents readers with a different kind of lesson from a different kind of turtle in the charming book Lessons of a Turtle. And it's a good lesson: Go with the slow! Life is about enjoying what's around you now and finding your own path. It's about the beauty of the journey more than the achievement of the finish line. So be like the turtle . . . notice, savor, bask, risk, grow. Put some life back in your life! Gingras helps readers get through life by using charming "turtlisms" that complement her just-as-cute turtle illustrations. She teaches us about life's little lessons with little treats like, "You can't move forward until you stick your neck out." and "The slower you go, the more you see." The author's little observations make a big difference on the journey through life. This book makes a lovely and inspiring gift.

Tobias, a box turtle who is always complaining about carrying his heavy shell while admiring the agility of lizards, befriends Lumpy, a toad. Lumpy tries to convince Tobias that being a lizard would not be as wonderful as he imagines, but Toby is unconvinced. Even when his shell saves Lumpy from a snake, Tobias continues to complain. A crafty vulture takes advantage of the turtle’s discontent and convinces Tobias that if he meets the “change monster,” he will be freed from his shell. Lumpy comes to the rescue just in time to push his friend out of the way of an eighteen-wheeler, foiling the vulture’s plan. Lumpy and Tobias return home after Tobias experiences a bad dream involving the snake. Tobias learns to like himself and is grateful for both his friend Lumpy and his shell.
