"Long, long ago, in a small village in a far away land, there lived a young girl named Maya…" And, so the story goes.
Poverty is all Maya has ever known, but she doesn't allow it to stop her from caring for her father, and others, as best she can. Kind and gentle, she is a lovely young girl who always puts others first. One day, she finds a little turtle and takes him home, raising and loving him, never knowing that he will play an instrumental part in her destiny.
Maya and the Turtle is a beautifully illustrated and poignant tale about the rewards of kindness, patience and courage, and a lesson in how true glory must be earned. Because it takes the loving kindness of a pure heart to awaken great love and power in another.
