Endorsements:

“Tadeo Turtle’s gleeful personality is sure to win the hearts of children. Janis Cox has not only prepared a delightful short tale for youngsters, she has created charming accompanying visuals. Even older readers are challenged by Tadeo’s dream of freedom which initially seems alluring until danger in the form of a hungry feline presents itself. Ms. Cox deftly weaves a message of thankfulness to God and the initial scripture focus of Psalm 139:13-14 rings true.  An extra treat at the end of the book is the Activities page where Ms. Cox invites readers to try out four unique crafts. A satisfying read with a gentle message.”

Glynis M. Belec  Author of Jailhouse Rock and Jesus Washes Peter’s Feet (Concordia Publishing.)

**************************************************

“Many of us longingly look at the talents and situations of others and wish we could be like them. Tadeo the turtle, encumbered in his clumsy shell, longs to be as free as some of the animals around him.  Just like the rest of us, he needs to learn that we are made as we are for a purpose. Jan Cox has addressed this common idiosyncrasy in a charming tale that will encourage children to be content and thankful for who God intended them to be.  Ms. Cox doesn’t stop with the story, she has also included some age-appropriate crafts to engage the readers as they reflect on the story. Tadeo will make a lasting gift for any child.”

Ruth Smith Meyer, Author of Tyson’s Sad Bad Day

*******************************************************

“Janis Cox’s gentle story about Tadeo Turtle has everything an elementary school teacher needs: compelling illustrations, simple text, and craft and curriculum ideas. Children will love the activities Janis has created. She reminds all of us how valuable and unique we are in God’s eyes.”

Marla Stewart Konrad, children’s author

*****************************************************

“Janis Cox writes a delightful tale with vibrant illustrations to accompany it.  She deals with a topic that every child must face–acceptance of oneself.  We all look at others and wish for what we don’t have but Ms. Cox reminds us that God has chosen us to be exactly what he wants us to be.  A wonderful read for children of all ages.”

“Janis Cox has written a wonderful children’s book that she wrote and illustrated herself. The drawings are colourful and sure to capture a child’s attention. The story is sweet and needed for children today who are having a hard time accepting themselves. This book would be perfect for children who are struggling with a handicap or who aren’t comfortable in their own skin. The lesson that God created each of us with different looks and qualities, but loves us all in the same way, is a lesson all children need to learn.”

Laura J. Davis, Award-winning author of Come to Me
