Summary
  • "In Turtle Pond, a boy and his family visit the local public gardens throughout the year to see the turtles. A Red-eared Slider is featured in the story
  • What is it about turtles that fascinates us? Is it how they hide inside their patterned shells, their wizened faces, their slow determination? In Turtle Pond, a child and his parents visit their local public garden throughout the year, observing the turtles as they play, dive, feed, bask, climb, hide and doze. James Gladstone's lively prose poem reveals the pleasure and curiosity that come from spending time with the turtles. Karen Reczuch's stunningly beautiful illustrations accurately portray these extraordinary creatures, both in and out of the water, surrounded by lush plants and the changing seasons beyond the greenhouse windows. An author's note provides more information about turtles, including the Red-eared Slider featured in the book
