Every creature is created different with its own purpose. There is a reason why dragonflies are colorful and why fishes have fins. In Tasso The Turtle, a delightful picture book by Ben Wolfson, young readers can follow a turtle who wishes to be anything but a turtle only to discover that he had his own merits.

Tasso the turtle is crying when his friend Danyella the dragonfly, alights gracefully on his shell. He wishes to be a dragonfly like her so he can fly off and see the world. Danyella cheers him up, telling him he is lucky to be a turtle, but there’s nothing she would rather be than a dragonfly. When Tasso goes for a swim, he encounters another friend, Freddie the fish. Again, he wonders if it is better if he were a fish. How long will it take for Tasso to realize that he is wonderful just the way he is?

Filled with vibrantly colored illustrations, Tasso The Turtle is an engaging tale that will teach young ones to embrace each other’s differences and to realize how wonderfully unique each one is. Through Tasso, they will learn to be comfortable in their own shell.
