Heartwarming And Thoughtful Tale About Friendship! This book offers a lovely story of how friendship can break boundaries all set in the beautiful backdrop of Central Park! Fun for the whole family. Discussion questions create a great way to have thought provoking discussions with children to help encourage processing and critical thinking skills. It is both playful and imaginative, a great story to read at bedtime or during a nice day in the park!
The idea of a story about a turtle and a duck came to me while walking around the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis reservoir located in Central Park, NY. It saddened me when I noticed a few turtles in the water with no way to leave that reservoir. I purposely chose the characters to be two females as I realize how important it is for us as females to develop trust and help each other. I hope this will be a first in a series where we can follow Ella and Jupiter through their experiences and journeys discovering the world.
