Kirkus Review


The Huffington Post

See a new profile of Sara by the Boston Athenaeum

“A lovely book that will motivate children to seek the wonder and beauty of the natural world.”

-Temple Grandin, author, Animals in Translation, Autism Rights Activist

“An enchanting picture book about a young girl who finds strength in helping animals. . . the matter-of-fact, compassionate depiction of Mimi’s special needs is both child friendly and honest. The author’s gentle voice rings just as clearly in her explanation of endangered sea turtles . . . this beautifully written story may help inspire a new generation of open-minded activists.”

—Kirkus Reviews

“A terrific story that will engage both children and their parents!”

-Robert Prescott,

Director, Massachusetts Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

“ . . . warm and heartfelt. . . about nurturing all that’s good, and about each individual's ability and right to live and grow and succeed.”

-Andrew Clements, author of best-selling children’s books: Frindle, No Talking, Lunch Money, and Extra Credit

“ . . . a wonderful book, deeply compassionate . . . straightforward in its portrayal of a young girl with an autism spectrum disorder, and the extraordinary insights and connections she makes with the natural world. I would recommend it for all families, not just those with children on the autism spectrum. This book has much to teach us all.”

-Dr. David K. Urion, Director of Behavioral Neurology, 

Boston Children’s Hospital

“Every Turtle Counts reminds us that sometimes the silent watchers are the ones who observe the most. It is a quiet story where small steps lead to significant journeys.”

—Jacqueline Dembar Greene, author of the best-selling Rebecca series for American Girl

“A touching story of joy and discovery...with lessons about turtles, children, autism, and life.”

Tom Hollister, Board of Advisors, The New England Center for Children
