When all of creation argues over who God is, a wise old turtle steps in to silence the crowds and proclaim that "above all...and within all things...God IS." This nondenominational modern-day classic offers a ready platform for discussing beliefs and the need for peace and acceptance among the peoples of the world -- a message that could not be more timely.

When it was first published a decade ago, Old Turtle was hailed as a uniquely satisfying, beautifully imagined fable about ecology, peace, and the interconnectedness of all beings. Its appeal continues to this day for both children and adults. Cheng-Khee Chee’s evocative watercolors, blending Eastern and Western traditions, perfectly accompany Douglas Wood’s simple and moving text.

Winner of the American Booksellers Association Book of the Year and the International Reading Association’s Children’s Book Award, Old Turtle is a modern classic that lovingly promotes peace, environmental awareness, and spirituality. Scholastic Inc. To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Old Turtle, each book will be packaged with a free CD for a limited time only.
