Why does Fred the turtle retreat into his shell and refuse to play? Turtle time is very slow It waits until it wants to go It has no clocks or rules or maps It stops a lot for turtle maps All youngsters need time out to rest and to dream, to borrow the turtle's example and burrow into a cozy pile of blankets for a rejuvenating slumber. Here is both a playful story about friendship and a soothing lullaby.
