Book Overview

An irresistibly cute story about finding the confidence to be yourself, starring a turtle in search of the perfect shell.

Terrance the turtle was born without a shell, so he uses a cardboard box instead. Terrance loves his box. It keeps him dry on soggy days, safe from snooping strangers, and is big enough to cozy up with a friend. But when another turtle points out that Terrance's shell is, well, weird, he begins to wonder whether there might be a better shell out there.

Eventually, and through much trial and error, Terrance learns that there's nothing wrong with being different--especially when it comes to being yourself.

Our five-year-old son loves this book. It has a heartwarming story about who you are, friendship and being true to yourself. The illustrations are cute, silly, and adorable. This book is our love!
   Great book !
This book became quickly the favorite of my 4 yo daughter! She absolutely loves the little turtle and does not understand why others made fun of him. We discuss a lot about kindness and tolerance as a result and I am sure that now she even loves the little turtle because he has no shell! This book is a great way to introduce differences and teach our little ones to be kind and not afraid if someone is a little different.
   Very cute to look at
The story is very sweet and its easy to read for a kid. Plus, the particular audience I was reading with is really into raccoon right now, so when the turtle made friends with one, he was very excited.
   Very cute story and illustration, a hit with the kids
The story and the illustrations are great, it is a very cute book. The kids love all the silly boxes that the turtle tries to wear as a shell. Would definitely recommend to anyone with children 5 and under.
   Great book to teach about diversity and inclusion
This book came as part of our Amazon Book Subscription. My four-year-old was initially confused by the concept of congenital abnormalities. We used the story to talk further about variations in how people appear and function, including blindness, as seen in a commercial and wheelchair use, as we see in a neighbor who uses a power chair. People don 't choose their circumstances and we need to be kind because life is hard as it is. This book helps to become more aware of physical differences. Must read for everybody, especially those without physical limitations who may not have a point of reference about disability or differences in a number of ways. Book is great!
   Fun Story with Challenging Vocabulary
The age rating for this book needs to be adapted. For a child who is just starting kindergarten, my five-year-old grandson is a good reader. He read this book to us a few days ago over Face Time. Some of the vocabulary is certainly beyond that of a child who is three to five years old. His Daddy had to help him define the pronunciation of 8 to 10 words and also had to sound three or four of them.
   Think I might have enjoyed this one more than the kids lol
Very sweet story, my 5 year old seems to enjoy it and my toddler has chosen it twice. Here is not a favorite, but still a very good book for children.
   This is a really cute book!
The book reminds us and the children we read it to be ok and normal to be different than others and if others are not nice to us because we are different than them, we can find comfort and strength in talking to our family and friends about it and not giving into discouragement. That a close friend, no matter how much different than us, is a gift and that we should treasure these friendships and not abandon them.
   An adorable book with a sweet message.
The illustrations of this book are well done and Terrance is the turtle. This is a book about accepting any challenges you may have and persevering even when others are mean. I understood the message and is well loved by the children.
   I think there should be more books about the little box turtle.
A very nice story for children. The little box turtle has such a good look in spite of its troubles. The illustrations are cute and fit perfectly into the story. This is a book of great quality.
