Thurston T. Turtle Moves to Hubbleville by Micki Bare
A charming tale of townspeople named for woodland creatures, who endear themselves to a newcomer to Hubbleville, Thurston T. Turtle. The town's quirky news reporter, Mr. Possum, is determined to get the scoop on the newest resident in town, but always seems to be one step behind.

“…perfect for a 6-8 year old to read to themselves but for any age for reading to! Especially for anyone that loves Turtles or any other Woodland Animal. This book is cute and very entertaining…I will be recommending this book to other friends and family with children of all ages.” Censie Sawyer, mommy blogger, Building Our Story, CO

Thurston T. Turtle and the Legend of the Lemonade by Micki Bare
In this follow-up to Thurston T. Turtle Moves to Hubbleville, our endearing newcomer is settling in when he notices everyone’s homemade butter cookies and lemonade taste the same. However, stories of the recipes’ origins are quite different. While Mr. Turtle’s second grade class uncovers other similarities, it is the discovery of old letters, help from the scattered Mr. Possum and a visit to an old family friend that converge to reveal the legend of the lemonade. And the butter cookies, too, of course!
"Micki Bare has penned another engaging tale of the adventures of Thurston T. Turtle in his new hometown of Hubbleville.  Thurston has settled into his new home and has begun his duties as a teacher in the local school when he comes upon an engaging mystery involving cookies and lemonade!   Children will enjoy reading and discussing the possible answers to all the questions that arise around these special treats, as new information is added with each chapter.  Solving the mystery becomes an exciting class project for Thurston’s students.  As always, the language is rich and colorful, expanding children’s store of expressive words to use as they read and discuss the story.  This is a great book to read and discuss with your children." Linda J. Scheer, primary educator and early childhood education consultant, NY
