A Desert Tortoise Learns How Brave He Can Be in ‘Bubby’s Puddle Pond’


Children who learn how to rely on friends and themselves when they’re young turn out to be happier adults. Bubby’s Puddle Pond: A Tortuga’s Tale of the Desert tells how Bubby, a young desert tortoise, moves outside his solitary shoebox and into an unfamiliar world, making friends who band together for safety, comfort and companionship. Along the way, Bubby realizes that just as he can trust his friends, he can trust himself, too.


Based on a mixture of fiction and the real-life behaviors of animals, Bubby’s Puddle Pond: A Tortuga’s Tale of the Desert takes place in a geographically unique part of the world, the Sonoran Desert. The book includes simple yet evocative terms to paint a picture of the American Southwest’s unusual flora and fauna. The book is intended to be used as a learning tool and highlights these terms and defines them in a glossary. There is a lso a fact sheet and curriculum guide at the end of the book for use in the classroom or further enrichment at home.

“I gained such an appreciation of the outdoors during my childhood,” Carol Hageman says. “I want children today to get curious about places and animals they’ve never seen. Maybe it will encourage them to go exploring in the outdoors around them.”
