The Turtle And the Dove

By Auryn Inc.

A tale of an unlikely and enduring friendship that weathers any storm.
Beloved children’s author & illustrator Don Freeman’s heart-warming tale is guaranteed to warm your heart!
When friends Turtle and Dove are separated, will they ever find each other again?

A beautiful white dove, blown out to sea by a storm, finds safety on the back of a sea turtle. The two become friends, until the storm’s winds pick up again and they are separated. The dove safely lands on an island, where she eventually finds a mate, and has children – all while wondering what happened to her dear friend Turtle. The two families are eventually re-united when Turtle – now with a family of his own -- arrives to the very same island. Both families end up the best of friends, with the dove’s family being treated to a “moonlight cruise” in the lagoon on the turtles’ backs.

Adding to the gentle, uplifiting story are Mr. Freeman’s serene illustrations in soft blues and grays.

The happy ending and the gentle illustrations make this a *perfect* bedtime story!

-Friendship, perseverance, hope, moving on in the face of loss, faith in a positive outcome

- “How do you think the dove felt when she first found the turtle? How do you think the turtle felt? Why?”
-“How do you think the dove felt when she was separated from the turtle in the storm? When they were reunited?”
-“We all have times when we face set-backs and feel like giving up. What do you think this book is trying to teach us about those times?”

- You can write your own version of the text for the book
- Personalize the narration: kids or parents can re-record the narration to make it their own!

- Image and word association vocabulary builder - when an image on the screen is touched, the associated word is spoken and the written word is displayed.
- Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted.
- Touch a word to hear it being spoken in “Read Myself” mode (almost like “training wheels” for new readers)

1) "Read to me" - Listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects until they are ready to move to the next page.
2) "Auto Play" - same as "Read to Me" except the page advances automatically once the narration is finished. Useful for those long car rides when you want the child to have a complete book experience.
3) "Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud.
