Where to buy it


Sheldon is a turtle who lives in the deep blue sea and dances every night to get himself ready for bed. One evening, he asks his parents the age-old question: Where do babies come from? The story the parents tell is an underwater search for the perfect egg - to make a turtle just like Sheldon.

This is a beautifully illustrated book for parents to read to children ages 5 to 7, and it's designed to help children who were born through IVF understand how they were born and how deeply they are loved.
