Turtle Splash

Turtle Splash

From Maine author Cathryn Falwell, it's a peaceful day at the pond as ten timid turtles bask in the sun.  As they are startled by the activities of other nearby creatures, the number of turtles on a log in a pond decreases from ten to one.

In the Maine classic, ten turtles drop off a log one by one. Surrounding their slow countdown are pond creatures that any toddler will want to spot. Not only does the book introduce the numbers 1-10, it is also a feast of bold images and rhyming action words.

What do you have in your house that could represent 10 turtles? You might decorate 10 paper plates to look like turtles. Line them up on a rolled-up blanket and have your child "act out" the story by dropping one turtle at a time off the "log."
