When turtle is invited to eat with the birds, he shrewdly schemes to outwit them. His scheme backfires, and he is left with broken shell pieces that had to be patched together to save his life. Paperback: 5.5" X 8.5"
Two Samples of Students' Writing on a program with Why Turles Have Patchy Shells. Their own version of Why Turtle Have Patchy Shells.
Maddy, an 8th Grader - "There once was a turtle named Penny
"Ms. Chukwukeme, helped me feel comfortable with my own writing and encouraged me to become an author too. She made the writing process less intimidating." [P.S. She is now Ms. Onwukeme]
Rachel, 8th Grader - "I like the program. I like your story, you can't come out heads with that type of behavior. I recommend it to family and friends. I will like to get a book to read to my little sisters."
Megan, 7th Grader - "I really like how we could hear a story and then write one of our own. Plus, we get to do a great art project. It is two lessons in one."
Bank Street Bookstore, 10/12/2014 - "Favorite Fable." "When Ada read, Why Turltes Have Patchy Shells at Bank Street Bookstore, children and grown-ups were quite taken with the meaning expressed in the book's words and images. Ada's ablility to tell a story (not simply read a stroy) came across with every page she turned and every image she described.
