Format: Paperback
This cute story is about a tortoise that decides one day that he is tired of being slow. He takes off his shell, and starts off. Soon he discovers that he misses his shell for all the things it provided him: shelter, shade, and safety. He realizes too that he will never be fast, and when he finally finds his shell again, he gladly climbs back inside.
This story is told wonderfully, and in rhyme as well. The words flow well, and are fun to read out loud. The illustrations are Eric Carle's customary well-done collages. The cute story well told and with such fun illustrations makes for a great book.

This is a good story with lots of nice pictures in it. It is another good addition from Eric Carle. I like it because of the attached audio cd which is a good extra resource to use with the children I work with at the listening centre we have set up in the room. The story has a lot of good rhyming words and the story flows along nicely. It is sure to be a favourite with the children. If you like the other Eric Carle stories then this is one you should have in your collection. I would recommend this book.

It was another easy-going read where I could engage young children not only into the world of exotic animal species but also allow them to reflect on their own emotions, where they could relate and refer to situations where they had behaved or felt like the foolish tortoise did. The imagery never fails to capture the fascination of the children.My collection has quickly built up and been dominated by the Eric Carle theme and long may it continue :) xx
