My Turtle and Me: Owen Bernstein

Based on the bestselling Twilight Turtle by Cloud b, this sturdy board book bedtime story is intended to serve as a hands-on way to help overcome a tot’s fear of the dark. It has a click-on turtle-shaped nightlight inset into the top right corner that remains visible on every page by means of a cut-out oval. The story is comforting and quiet, leading up to bedtime.

From the last page:

My turtle cuddles close when it’s time to go to bed.
And I snuggle back because I love him so.
My turtle lights up to show he loves me too!
