IZZY is loved!

“It’s time for terrapin Izzy to leave the marsh and lay her eggs on the sandy beach. Izzy doesn’t know the way and calls on her marsh friends for help. Eventually Izzy meets another terrapin Addie who guides her to the beach. One major obstacle stands in the way of the terrapins getting to the beach; they conquer that obstacle with ingenuity and creativity. IZZY’S CROSSING is an engaging journey with a wonderful and lively character who makes her way through illustrator Marco Serido’s colorful and countryside having a good deal of fun. IZZY’S CROSSING should create enthusiastic students for science study of terrapins.” ~ reviewed by Ernest Jaeger, Ed.D [FIVE STARS]

On this unofficial holiday, people can choose to donate money to this organization, volunteer for other organizations that promote turtle conservation and protection or simply spend the day enjoying cute turtle pictures on the Internet. After all, there’s no right or wrong way to celebrate this holiday as long as turtles are the main focus of your efforts.
