  1. Just wanted to pop over to say thanks for your comment on our flower pounding activity. Also, I LOVE your illustrations – simply beautiful!

  2. I really like the message and tone of the book. I’m bookmarking this page to come back to. I love children’s books with ‘value’ lessons and without reading it, I can tell this is one of them.

  3. Thank you for inviting me to check “Tadeo Turtle” Janis. It truly looks like a good story with content and values and beautiful illustrations. I will have to keep your book in mind for when I explore the pond theme again next year with my children.

I love to connect with you.
