In Turtle''s shell there''s room for only one. But in Turtle''s heart, there is room for everyone! This tale of a lonely turtle who comes out of his shell to find friendship and community celebrates diversity and inclusion.

When a solitary turtle decides to make some renovations to his shell, he doesn''t have a blueprint, only a dream for a better life. He starts by building a deck-though he figures the deck could use a fireplace. And a fireplace needs wood, so naturally, he plants a garden. But it isn''t really a garden without a pond . . .

Finally satisfied with the intricate world upon his back, word begins to spread of the magical Town of Turtle," attracting newcomers from far and wide. All are welcome in Turtle''s town, where life is a little less lonely, if only you come out of your shell."
