Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Is life in the slow lane really better? Tortoises think so! Shelly the Tortoise and her Grandpa spend the day learning about their cousins (crocodiles) eating their favorite foods (prickly cactus and flowers) and losing races with jackrabbits. Life in the slow lane seems perfect - except for those homes and highways moving into the tortoises' habitat. How can people and tortoises really live together? Shelly and her Grandpa know the answer - do you? In delightful rhymed verse, Conrad J. Storad tells the story of the tortoise and explains how it has adapted to survive in the desert. Useful information about these amazing creatures appears at the end of the book. Nathan Jensen's illustrations of tortoises taking it easy - and one Type A rabbit who learns to slow down - add to the charm of this informative book for children.
