Harriet the tortoise likes to do things slowly. She explores her home on the Galápagos Islands slowly. She eats slowly. And when the sun goes down, she slumbers deeply all night long.
When Harriet's friends tell her to pick up the pace, Harriet decides to journey to a neighboring island to see what there is to see. She parades with penguins and rides with dolphins, encountering adventure at every turn. But is life in the fast lane right for a tortoise who loves to take her time?
"This sweet lesson is made even more palatable with engaging illustrations of cheerful Galápagos flora and fauna, including flamingos, iguanas, blue-footed boobies, frigate birds, dolphins, humpback whales, hammerhead sharks, spotted rays, Sally Lightfoot crabs, even centipedes and snakes.... Slowing down and taking time to appreciate everything around you is precisely the value this simple story reflects. A journey of self-discovery in a unique environment." Kirkus Reviews
