Bubby’s Puddle Pond: A Tortuga's Tale of the Desert
Written by: Carol Hageman (2017)
Illustrated by Nathaniel P. Jensen
Edited by Conrad J. Storad
Carol Hageman, the author of Bubby’s Puddle Pond, is a lover of wildlife and outdoors. She was inspired to share her observations of animals in the story of a tortoise. Bubby is a desert tortoise from the Sonoran desert in Arizona. He meets many animal friends in his new habitat. Join Bubby on his adventures in his puddle pond. In this story, children will learn what foods desert tortoises eat, new vocabulary words such as burrow, habitat, and hibernate, and learn about the adoption process. The end of the story is followed by very informative material that teaches children even more about desert tortoises and adoption. There is also a glossary, a curriculum guide for teachers and homeschool parents, and hands on activities. I recommend this book to parents with children who love animals and preschool teachers to use during their habitat portion of the curriculum.
