Product Description
Book Description:
Toby is a cute, bright turtle, who loves to eat. He eats everything in sight, and the more he eats, the fatter he becomes. So fat, that his shell no longer fits his body. 

His mom calls for help, and experts flock to advise and support the little turtle. Each one has his own unique solution. But none of them works. 

When Toby has almost given up hope, he meets a wise old turtle who proposes a different approach. His proposal helps any boy or girl who wants to lose weight to succeed. 

This amusing story helps children to comprehend that there are no magical solutions to real problems and that the right way is not always the easiest. 

At the end of the story there are some fun food ideas which the young reader can enjoy making. Each one is a unique, illustrated recipe for creating and serving healthy food.

Hm.  I guess I like the idea, about working hard to eat right and take care of your body. It's a good message and lesson, and shows that quick fixes aren't going to do the trick.

 It was hard to read though. The rhyming was too forced. I'd have preferred it not even try to rhyme. Also not really suitable for my age range (almost 2 to almost 5), would be a more appropriate story for a slightly older bracket (elementary ages).

The most redeeming quality of the book, for me, is the fruit and veggie snack ideas at the end of the book! Very cute and would gain interest form the younger crowd. I'm not sure even a frog prince could convince my littles to eat peas though, unfortunately haha.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review via All opinions are my own. #promotion
