A wry and tender tale about an eager young turtle who learns that the dearest gifts are those you keep close to your heart
The Turtle Family can hardly wait for Grandmother to arrive and celebrate her birthday, and little Albert is the most excited of all. "Come outside with me, Grandmother," he begs after she's sunk into the easy chair. "I'll teach you how to play marbles!" Albert is crushed when his big sister tells him that it's too cold to go outside and that he should have gotten Grandmother a present to take home, like the pink beaded bracelet she made. Is there anything Albert can give Grandmother to keep her warm — and remind her of him?
