Children between the ages of 7 - 11 years will enjoy this book. Some younger children might gain from the story too from both the photographs and the text.

"A lovely concept to base a story on a real animal - Tuvia is the perfect name for a turtle - and we are immediately drawn into the quandary of what is to become of him. The book highlights one of the most important lessons a child can learn, that being, to care for our world and all its creatures. The story is an expression of kindness and love, involving problem-solving and delightfully told."
