Chrissie's Shell is a heartwarming tale of a little turtle that dreams of being somebody different until God shows her that she is just who she was intended to be. The animal characters are loveable and beautifully illustrated. I think every child needs to have this book in his/her library. It will foster great conversation between parent and child, give the child the sense of pride in who they and will allow the child to explore all the wonderful things they can do. As both a teacher of small children and a mother, I just loved this book.
