Book Review: Tadeo Turtle by Janis Cox

Tadeo loved to laugh and play…
… until he met Sam Squirrel one day.

Janis Cox’s story Tadeo Turtle is a delightful tale of a turtle who becomes discontented with carting his shell around after he makes a new friend who can do things he can’t do.  Tadeo dreams that he loses his shell and can do everything that Sam Squirrel can do—until Cat shows up.  Then Tadeo learns that “God had made him perfectly.”

Janis’ beautiful watercolour paintings accompany her rhymed story about Tadeo.  Together, the pictures and story show children that each of us is unique—and that’s a good thing.  The story is a lovely illustration of Psalms 139:13-14 (NLT), “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knite me together in my mother’s womb.  Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!  Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it!”

Please continue to read.



  1. It is a most beautiful book and I am awaiting feedback from my niece on the copy I sent to her daughter! She also has a 5 month old son so…. who knows when I will hear back…

I love to connect with you.
