"It’s a sweet dose of civics combined with an easy introduction to natural history."

Jason Salzman, Colorado Book Award Winner

When turtle-loving Ella learns about state symbols, she knows right away that one is missing. “We need a state reptile!” she announces to her class. Ella and her class journey through the civic process of creating a new state law, learning a whole lot about turtles along the way. Based on true stories of elementary students initiating state symbols, Vote for Turtle shows how kids can engage in democracy and make a difference.
