Children’s books come in many shapes, sizes and varieties. Some about princesses, while others about frogs. Easy readers, designed to capture a child’s interest while enhancing their reading and vocabulary skills.

The Seekers the Secrets of the TurtlesAnd then, my favorite… lap books, where cuddling is a prerequisite. Sometime I refer to these a “Granny reads” because I imagine my mom sitting close to the grandchildren, sharing these stories. Different from the “Granny reads” are those chapter books for reading aloud together. These are the kind that you crawl in your kid’s bed to read and leave on the nightstand for the follow evening.

That’s the kind of book The Seekers: The Secret of the Turtles is, authored by Cece Younger. It is just heavy enough, or wordy enough to be tricky as a read alone book, but with an adult’s inflection and perhaps interpretation, this story can best be enjoyed. We need these kind of stories… those that remind us that even though our little sprout is learning to read, or can read alone… they shouldn’t always be left alone to read. Again, different from those cute “message” books that I consider perfect Granny material… books like The Seekers: The Secret of the Turtles, allow children to express their inquisitive nature and expand their vocabulary.
