Turtle in Paradise

Turtle in ParadiseTurtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My daughter strongly recommended that I read this book. I must admit that the child has good taste!

Turtle has been sent to Key West, Florida to stay with her aunt's family during the Great Depression. But no worries that boys won't like the book due to the female protagonist - it turns out that her cousins are all rambunctious boys who she joins on adventures. Turtle may never be the same....

This would be a good readaloud for students in fourth and fifth grade. A nice bonus: it was a 2011 Newbery Honor Book.
