Format: Hardcover
He's three now, and he wants me to read it to him every night before he goes to sleep. It's a very nice little story about how a blue turtle gains friends and becomes happy because he is a good turtle on the inside, no matter how he looks on the outside. The other turtles don't like him because he isn't green, but the other animals do (including a whale he befriends). The pictures are all very bright and colorful.

We LOVE Limu! This is a great story about perseverance, friendship, and being kind at heart. Limu is a good turtle who is just a little different than the other turtles. He makes a choice to be kind even though others have not always been kind to him. What a beautiful message to teach to children. The story is engaging and sweet, and the book is beautifully illustrated. I love that when I read this story to my son I am sharing with him the spirit of Aloha, even though we are raising him far, far away from Hawai'i. I hope you will share Limu with your family and that you will enjoy him as much as we do!

Format: Hardcover
I completely agree with all other reviews. This book is a must! I bought it in Maui last summer, and now I am back for more. The colors of this book are so vivid that they tend to really capture your child's attention. If your child is easily distracted like my son, you have to buy this book. It will not only calm him/ or her for bed, but it has an amazing story that gravitates toward a child. My child has memorized the book's entirety, from not knowing how to read (he's only 3), but from the book's captivating pictures and message. There are also other great books from Island Heritage Publishing. Amazon has all!

This is a cute story, however, the publisher chose a font that is not good for beginning readers. It's extremely important for publishers of children's books to use a font that is consistent with the way children are learning to read and write their letters. It really helps a child move from recognizing letters to sounding out words. I hope the publisher will consider a more child-friendly font for future editions of this book.

Bought this to read during my Hawaii Theme Week - a slight change from Ocean Theme. My students loved the colorful pictures. Text is short enough to keep them engaged. Great story for parents, teachers, grandparents who like stories about fictionalized animals.

Beautifully illustrated with lots of creatures to show your child. The message of this book is one of friendship, kindness and inner beauty. Best of all, your kids will want to hear this story over and over. Buy this and you will not be disappointed.
