it was amazing

I loved this delightful book with an important message to share with children about diversity and acceptance. Myrtle is a purple turtle and she is happy with her life and looks until she comes across a green turtle who tells her that she cannot be a turtle because she is purple. Turtles are not purple. The green turtle laughs at Myrtle.

Although her friends have never commented on the fact that Myrtle and her family are purple and it has never been something she has considered before, the green turtle's comments and laughter hurt Myrtle's feelings and damage her self confidence. Myrtle becomes very unhappy about her looks and decides to change them. Luckily Myrtle has a loving family and good friends to help her restore her self esteem and enjoyment of life.

The illustrations in this book are beautiful and will make any child smile with pleasure.
