Bubbly's Puddle Pond is much more than a children's book. It is also a reference, an educational curriculum, and a resource that creatively encourages children and adults to explore their curiosity about desert tortoises and the natural world. --Mike Demlong, Wildlife Education Program Manager, Arizona Game and Fish Department
Young readers will enjoy this charming tale of friendship as Bubby, the desert tortoise, settles into life in his new home. A variety of native southwestern desert animals join Bubby in the cycle of desert seasons. Readers are introduced to vocabulary related to desert animals and their habitat. The author and illustrator reinforce the vibrancy of the Sonoran Desert with a warm, caring, delightful story of friendship in an Arizona backyard. --Martha Takacs, M. Ed., National Board Certified Teacher
Bubby's adventures with his friends are the perfect introduction to desert animals for curious young minds. This book is entertaining and educational, encouraging young readers to take a closer look at the nature in their own backyards. I'll be reading it to my desert box turtle more than once! --Dr. Teagan Wall, PhD, Neuroscientist and Television Writer
