Every Turtle Counts....Barbara Hoagland Hunter....28 pages....Upper elementary

This is a story book with a lot of full-page color pictures that 6 and 7 year olds will like to hear read aloud and older
elementary school kids will enjoy reading.  Some of the deeper meaning wll be above the comprehension level of the
younger kids.

It is a story of a young autistic girl, Mimi, who finds a cold-stunned rare Ridley's turtle on a beach.  Everyone else is
sure the turtle is dead, but Mimi belives it is still alive.  A call to Audubon's Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary begins
the turtle's recovery, with every stage witnessed by a  hopeful Mimi.  All the while, through her devotion to her turtle,
Mimi herself gradually breaks through the wall of autism.
