The Turtle Sisters Move
When a wild birthday party with floats, boats, kids, and dogs arrives at Cape Cod Pond, the turtle sisters and their friends swim close to investigate. But when someone shouts, "Turtles! Turtles! Catch the turtles!" the race of a lifetime is on. As summer progresses, the sisters, Daphne and Chloe, watch as each kind of turtle adopts a different method for coexisting with people. By fall, when the turtle sisters' old swimmer friend finally finds them on the other side of the pond, Daphne and Chloe realize that only if everyone who comes to the pond loves everything in the pond, can they all be happy.
Based on observations spanning many years, Susan Baur continues to weave the daily dramas of pond life into stories for ages four and up.
