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:

And this is Arianna, at home in Wisconsin.

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!
