My Turtle and Me: Owen Bernstein
With a light up turtle in the corner of this board book, your totz will hug this work when they drift off to sleep. In My Turtle and Me, author Owen Bernstein shares a young boy's story of his love for his turtle. The two go everywhere together: to the playground, to the dinner table, and in the car. Life brightens when shared with a beloved pet.
Carol Thompson's art feels like a great cross between Helen Oxenbury and John Burningham. The board book is based on the bestseller Twilight Turtle, by Cloud B, the baby sleep specialists. Find this work and you'll find the turtle irresistible.
