We strive to make our books unique and we design them from the ground up. Books by Galloping Turtle Books are created by educators and illustrated with photos from professional photographers. Our books are not just photocopies of previously published books. And our books are not designed from mass produced book themes and generic interactive tools.
Galloping Turtle Book’s photographer, Dwight Kuhn, has published more than 125 children's books [print editions] on nature and biology subjects. Many of his books have been awarding winning titles. Kuhn was one of ten photographers featured in the book: Wildlife Photography - The Art and Technique of Ten Masters.
Six-year old loved it!
I read this to a friend's six-year old last night and she loved it. I should say "we read it" because she read most of the animal names, and that was really fun for her. (I covered up the pictures while she sounded out the word.) She pressed the button for the read-aloud pronunciation whether or not she could read the name -- every time! And of course she pressed all the slide show buttons. She responded to all of the pictures by saying something she knew about the animals or asking questions if she didn't know that animal. The photos are clear, beautiful and dramatic. Great book!
Good book with sound and visuals for learning. Cool pictures!
Children discover in this book what amazingly different forms animals take and the great photos show what an array of colors occur in the natural world. The diverse choice of photos give the parent and child many things to talk about. Fun!
