To celebrate World Turtle Day here is a FREE copy of my children’s book: Nika and Painted Turtle EBOOK.


Slow things down this weekend. Why not read Nika and the Painted Turtle outdoors under your favourite tree.

NEW – Nika and the Painted Turtle



HELP SAVE TREES: When printing this book please consider using 100% recycled paper. (31 pages)

I designed the book so that children could personalize it and make it their very own. Once printed, punch holes down the left hand side and tie with ribbon. The child can then add their own drawings to the book as they learn more about turtles, nature, the Little Humbugs and the environment. They could even add a secret envelope at the back of the book for little treasures they collect from nature…………………I hope you will enjoy the book as much as I did writing and illustrating it, love Marghanita x

The turtle symbol means to honor the creativity within you.

In Native American teaching, Turtle is the oldest symbol for planet Earth. The turtle symbol is reminding you to honor the creative source within you, to be grounded to the Earth, and to observe your situation with motherly compassion.

Why not make a little felt turtle to snuggle up with at night….love and peace Marghanita x
