Review provided by World of Ink Network

“We are all different but our unique traits make us who we truly are. It is important for kids to realize that they don't have to compare themselves to others in order to be accepted. Sometimes, they have to accept themselves first in order to be accepted by others.” ~Irene Roth, author of The Seven Habits of Highly Committed Writers

 
About the Book:

Milton is a story of a turtle. Unlike other turtles with round or oval shells, Milton has a square shell. One afternoon, and being new to the area, he decides to take a walk to the pond to relax.

Just when he thinks he finds the perfect spot, he can't stay. Not wanting to cause a problem, he goes further up the pond, only to discover, home is the best place to relax.

EXCERPT:

“Hey, look at me. I can sit on a turtle. You are a

turtle, aren’t you?” the frog asked, with some

hesitation.

 

Milton, hearing the same question before, turned

his head to see the frog sitting on his back and

simply answered, “of course I am. Will you please

get off my shell.”

 

“Well,” said the frog, as he jumped off and landed

next to Milton’s head, “I’ve never seen a turtle

with a square shell.”
