This was one of my daughter's favorite books when she was growing up. I hadn't been able to find a copy to give a friend's son, and was so glad to find it on Amazon! It's absolutely precious and I love the intricate drawings.
Delightful children's story
This book was precious! We didn't know until the 2nd to the last page, how the title applied to the story. ADORABLE!
Wonderful book!
My daughter and I always enjoyed this story, and the delicate illustrations pull one in with discussions beyond the story itself. Usually cited as a story about listening to and believing children, there is another way this story can be used, that might be helpful. I am a healthcare worker/massage therapist and instructor and have often noticed that people who have been unsatisfactorily cared for when at an emergency room didnt explain their condition in a way that was understood. When relating their condition to me, I realized that they hadn't really explained what was wrong. So not only could this book be used to talk about listening to children, it could also be used to discuss/examine how we tell others what is wrong with us.
I was delighted when my old 1974 copy of this book resurfaced from my parents' basement. Although this story is nearly twenty years old, it is one of those treasured tales that never loose their charm, and one I could never forget.
All day long, Albert the young turtle lies in bed complaining of a toothache, to the disbelief and dismay of every other member of his family-"everyone knows turtles don't have teeth"! Finally, when Grandmother turtle stops by, she not only believes Albert when he says he has a toothache, she knows how to fix it!
Soft, smooth, thoughtful full-page pencil sketches accompany every single page of text. This book is a treasure, a classic, and belongs on every child's (and doting grandparent's)bookshelf. Get it while you can!
I use this great story as a lead-in to meetings with my teaching team to remind them to listen 'between the lines' and also that it's important to all relationships to clairfy the 'others' intended meaning - and how easy it is for conversations to get muddled if we make assumptions about what the 'other' meant.
