Take Your Time: A Tale of Harriet, the GalaPagos Tortoise


Add your own review!

Overview

Harriet the tortoise likes to do things slowly. She explores her home in the Galapagos Islands-slowly. She eats-slowly. And when the sun goes down, she slumbers deeply all night long. When Harriet's friends tell her to pick up the pace, Harriet decides to journey to a neighboring island to see what there is to see. She parades with penguins and rides with dolphins, encountering adventure at every turn. But is life in the fast lane right for a tortoise who loves to take her time?

Reviews

Harriet, a slow-moving resident of one of the Galapagos Islands, endures the scolding of her neighbors, swims to another island to see the penguin parade, appreciates the variety of animals over, on, in, and under the ground and water, tries out speed by riding on a dolphin's back, and returns with a new sense of self-respect. This sweet lesson is made even more palatable with engaging illustrations of cheerful Galapagos flora and fauna, including flamingos, iguanas, blue-footed boobies, frigate birds, dolphins, humpback whales, hammerhead sharks, spotted rays, Sally Lightfoot crabs, even centipedes and snakes. - Kirkus Reviews
