Since it is well known that I am a voracious reader, I often have people ask me for book recommendations. Due to this, I've decided to start a weekly list of books that I have personally reviewed. Each book has received a minimum 4 star rating from me. If you have read any of the books I've listed, please let me know what you thought of them in the comments!
This story celebrates learning in creative ways. It celebrates the individuality of children. It reminds us that we are all something special because we are our own person.
Yertle the turtle is the king of the pond in Salamasond. He's a rather egotistical ruler who commands all his turtles to create a living throne. When a turtle named Mack voices his concerns about the way the turtles are being treated, the turtle king brushes him off and demands even more turtles. Eventually, Mack burps and the whole turtle throne falls with Yertle landing face down in the mud.
