Cute book with cartoon style.

This cute book is about a little turtle and how he handles the snow. Turtles are not meant for snowy weather so he does not exactly know what to do! The story tells about his silly day in the snow! My students really enjoyed reading it and thought it was funny to see a turtle in the snow.

This is a fantasy picture book appropriate for the primary grades.
This book is done in ink and wash.
This book is about a tortoise named Shelley. She wonders why she can't go outside in the winter like all of the animals. Even though her parents warn her that tortoises are not supposed to do anything but hibernate in the winter, Shelley's curiosity gets the best of her. Outside, Shelley meets all sorts of animals that explain to her that she is "ridiculous" for being outside in the winter. She realizes that she does not have the means/tools to survive outside in the winter. When she returns home and her parents ask her if she had been outside, she simply responds, "ridiculous!"
This book is set outside in the winter, which is reinforced and accurately portrayed by the illustrations. The illustrator does a good job to set the scene with windy conditions, snow, cold, etc.
This book would be good for exploring the different special things about different animals- what sets them apart from other types of animals (could be coupled with science lessons).
This book could be used to discuss/explore being yourself and not trying to be someone you aren't. ( )
