Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a turtle? To carry your home wherever you go?
In this delightful rhyming story for young readers, children are invited to imagine what life would be like if we could all live like turtles do—connected to the natural world and completely in tune with everything around us. With our home on our back and the sky as our roof, life would be quite an adventure!
A charming mix of beautiful and funny, this story is sure to engage young readers and have them picturing their own life of adventure and peace. The turtle in Oh I Wish I Were a Turtle is inspired by Hugo, a real-life tortoise who is 104 years old!
