Such Sweet Photos — And Reviews

Meet some sweet young readers of Myrtle the Purple Turtle! 

Blog Photo - Ava and Elias reading Myrtle 2

Above are Elias, almost 5, and Ava, 7, reading the book at their home near Toronto.  Their mother Wendy kindly sent this photo and captions it: “Big Sis reading to Elias. It was picture day at school, hence why Elias has a tie on. :)”

And here’s Ava’s review:

Arianna’s grandmother Karen adds this advice for anyone thinking of buying a copy of the book:

“Buy two. One for your bookshelf and one for your local school.”

Great advice.  I’ve also heard from two individuals in the U.S. who told me they each bought an extra copy and gave it to their local library.

A common refrain I hear from adults about Myrtle? It’s this, voiced by Ava and Elias’ mom Wendy:

“Myrtle has such a powerful message and one that Shawn and I try to instil in both our kids. I wish this story was around when I was a kid.”

Thank you, Ava, Elias, Wendy, Shawn, Arianna and Karen!

Please keep sending those photos and reviews from your young relatives and friends, everyone.  I love them!

  1. I’ve put a couple in my cart. I don’t have grandchildren but I have a friend or two with them so I’ll send them along. I love the premise of this book and it should be shared. Great photos of smiling faces. Wishing you great success with this.

  2. Wonderful reviews by your young readers! Difference is what actually should be celebrated because the way internet pushes people to become all the same, like the same, eat the same, dress the same is going nowhere and it is taking us nowhere. Distinction is what matters and being special with every different feature is great. Such message should be supported more often. Therefore, you’re doing a great job.
