What is this picture book about?
Samson C. Turtle is one of the most wise and wonderful creatures in the sea and he's keen to share just why. At a sprightly 102 years young, he's learnt a thing or two about how to manage fear and anxiety ... but what might that be?
Whatever it is, his friends certainly need it. From meeting a whale whose eyes are glistening with tears, to a great salmon fish who can't overcome his fears, Samson's friends are plagued by something that only he has the answer to.
What is it? And what sage advice can Samson offer?
This visually stunning yet naturally calming book is perfect for any little one who has experienced anxiety and wants to understand how to best address it.

An excerpt from the story
Under the waves is where you will meet, Samson C. Turtle on Sea Turtle Street.
Samson was wise at one hundred and two, if there was a problem, he knew what to do.
Along came a whale with tears in his eyes, all of the fish were scared by his size.
“How can I stop feeling sad?” asked Whale.
Samson knew how with a flick of his tail.
Salt and seawater and into the blue, Samson C. Turtle knew just what to do! Close your eyes softly, breathe through your nose, fill up your lungs and wiggle your toes. Let out a breath and count one, two, three...
Yippee! Whale was happy!

Very clever to get the message across to children when they are feeling anxious or unhappy.
Very good Thankyou
A lovely gift for my 4 year old nephew for his birthday!
My grandson LOVED this book . We practiced the breathing teqnique together . I believe these kind of practices ingrained at an early age will set u up for life . Definitely recommend. I have Toms tears , remembering mother nature and my rainforest classroom as well . He loves them all . Bedtime stories are the best .
Beautifully illustrated and simply worded story with meaningful message.
Love these books. I’ve now bought 3 for my soon to be born grandchild!
Excellent book and great shopping experience!
The book is a gift and will be opened at christmas, but looking at it quickly we are most impressed with the quality of the book construction, artwork and story. Many childrens books get passed on or thrown out. This one will be a keeper.
Great book for a preppy
