Hes a pretty normal turtle- he likes sports, music, and eating flies! But the one thing Sheldon doesnt think fair, is that while other turtles have round shells, Sheldons shell, is, well, square! From the name-calling, the teasing, and the snickering, Sheldon puts up with a lot. Just when hes at his lowest, he does something that SURPRISES EVERYONE! He listens to his heart and THAT makes all the difference! Dr. Mike Perko, Associate Professor at the Univeristy of North Carolina and Nick Nebelsky (illustrator and co-producer) have brought Sheldon to life and have written two books now to share with children, teachers, and parents who want to learn that its not whats on the outside that matters most, but whats on the inside. Its a light-hearted book that illustrates how even a turtle can be bullied. Mikes words will resonate with anyone who has been bullied and will make your child fall in love with Sheldon! All of our Sheldon-series books teach kids to Just be yourself and then kids will see who you are and embrace that. Lets face it, we all know how hurtful bullying can be. Dr. Perko has written a nice rhyming book for children ages 6-9 that addresses one of the biggest stresses a child deals with, teasing and bullying. Our kids are our future and they need these life lessons to deal with life so they can grow into healthy young adults with great morals. Nebelsky added.
