New Children's Book "Look Out for Turtles" and Folkmanis Turtle Puppets
I just added a new book to our website called "Look Out for Turtles." We sell a lot of turtle puppets, especially in the spring to the Carolinas. Seems that they have turtles come ashore there and the schools, libraries and day care schools love to have turtle puppets to explain what is going on to the kids.
Tess picked this book as it covers some techincal information for younger kids (5 to 9) and includes the Galapagos tortoise. We have both the large and baby Galapagos Tortoise puppets, as well as green turtles and a few left of the discontinued loggerhead turtles. If you go to the Galapagos Tortoise page, you can watch a video online of how to operate the Galapagos Tortoise. Dan Folkmanis is the puppeteer!
