Turtle Time Book By Sandol Stoddard

Turtle Time (1995)—The third book of three that matched Stoddard’s words with Lynn Munsinger’s lively, engaging illustrations finds a young child learning an important lesson from a turtle named Fred: the need to make time for quiet contemplation and rest. The underlying message reflects a theme that runs throughout Stoddard’s work from The Thinking Book onward: the need for quiet time every day, both to rest the mind and to spark the imagination.
