Channel your inner Zen turtle with Sandy Gingras's gorgeous watercolor gift book.

Long ago, Sandy Gingras read The Tortoise and the Hare, a fable that teaches slow and steady wins the race. But she didn't learn the lesson Instead she lived the race of hurry-up and do-it-all every day. And it was tiring.

But now, Gingras presents readers with a different kind of lesson from a different kind of turtle in the charming book Lessons of a Turtle. And it's a good lesson: Go with the slow Life is about enjoying what's around you now and finding your own path. It's about the beauty of the journey more than the achievement of the finish line. So be like the turtle . . . notice, savor, bask, risk, grow. Put some life back in your life

Gingras helps readers get through life by using charming turtlisms that complement her just-as-cute turtle illustrations. She teaches us about life's little lessons with little treats like, You can't move forward until you stick your neck out. and The slower you go, the more you see. The author's little observations make a big difference on the journey through life.

This book makes a lovely and inspiring gift.
