Little turtle was lost! Free from his egg, he climbed out into a big, beautiful new world. Lost and alone, he wondered�where did he really belong? The bear told him to live in the woods; the frog said, �The swamp!� But turtle just didn�t feel at home. He needed help, but where could he turn? Author Susan Ring helps turtle in this whimsical story of self-exploration and nature, Where Should Turtle Be? Detailed illustrations by Laurie Allen Klein give these friendly animals personality, and in the end, an unexpected tickle and tumble help turtle find his place in his new world. The �For Creative Minds� educational section includes �Turtle Fun Facts� and �Match the Turtle to its Habitat.�

Booklist Review: "A baby sea turtle emerges from his nest in the sand but, taking a wrong turn, finds himself in the woods. A friendly bear explains the life of a box turtle, but that information doesn't seem to apply to him nor does that of a painted turtle at the pond or a terrapin in the salt marsh. Soon, improbably, transported about a mile and a yard by a fit of laughter, he finds himself back on the beach and makes his way to the sea. The satisfying rhythm and rhyme of the short verses make this a good choice for reading aloud. Children will sympathize with the little turtle, who listens politely to the advice of others, but follows his own heart in the end. Along the way, they'll also pick up some ideas about the habits and habitats of four types of turtles, ideas that will be reinforced and extended by the appended Turtle Fun Facts and two matching games.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2009 Booklist"
