Avocado the Turtle by Kiara Shankar
Avocado the Turtle: The One and Only
by Kiara Shankar (Goodreads Author)
This book has been written by a 13 year old girl and I'm amazed by the moral it holds. I mean it takes us adults to realize that we are enough by ourselves. People are so harsh on themselves to be seen as perfect, to match up the standard the society has set. They try to get a certain body type, life style, they try to fit in. And it's not pathetic, it's just so sad. It honestly takes so much to be brave enough to accept our own flawed-selves. To be ourselves and be confident about it.

Reading about this from a little girl is just so precious.
The illustrations were beautiful. And the story used to convey this important message is just brilliant.

Moral story

This is a story of a turtle that was abandoned by its fellow mates for being different.
Avocado, the she-turtle was outspoken and often came out of her shell unlike others. The turtle community forced her to leave their territory and to never come back. The disheartened turtle then finds a giraffe that seemed to be nice with her. He introduced her to the other friends in the jungle who were equally chirpy and happy in their own ways. They made her realize her worth and that she is perfect with the trait she possesses.
Child bullying is one of the most important factors in shaping one's psychology. A child’s mental and emotional health is determined by the overall behaviour and approach received in childhood. So, it is a must to take care of these delicate things by infusing positivity through a healthy environment.
With this book, our little author has taken the initiative to spread all the good and wise things among the readers.

It's okay to be different

This is the story of a turtle named Avocado. Avocado was a turtle who stood-out in the turtle community because she liked to talk with others and have fun unlike the others. So, she was said to be a bad example and was cast out. That's when she met Lemonade the giraffe, Bacon the pig and Honey the bee. They were like her and accepted her for who she was. Avocado later understood that it was okay to be different.
Starting from the book cover, all the illustrations in the book are beautiful and connect with the story. The parallel illustrations for every few lines in the book are child-friendly. Accordingto me, the most important aspect in a children's book is the message it conveys. And this book shares two important messages. First, it is okay to be different and stand-out in a crowd. Second, one can get along with individuals with diverse characteristics and be happy. All these make the book better and it can definitely be given to young kids in their developing years.

A good moral story book

Title - Avocado The Turtle
The One and only
Author - Kiara Shankar
Vinay Shankar
Genre - children's book
Pages - 43
Format - e-book

The story revolves around the protagonist Avocado, a turtle who is rejected by all because she is not a normal turtle. One day all the turtles decide to send her away from their community. She feels very different and odd.
Read the book to know what happens next.

The cover of the book is very attractive. The title is totally apt. The plot of the story is interesting and inspiring. The authors have narrated the story amazingly in a very simple language. They have described their views about 'Be Yourself' with the help of beautiful illustrations. The interesting thing about the book is that it is written by 13 year old.

A very good gifting option.

Overall, a good moral story book for kids of age 3 to 8 years.

Rating - 4.8/5

I recommend this book to all parents and kids.

Must read for children

Avocado, the turtle is sad because her friends dislike her for being too friendly. One day, they decided to send her away. Sad and disheartened, Avocado didn't leave her shell for a long time when she heard a knock and it changed the way she thought about herself forever. She realized it never mattered what others what of you.

A huge thank you to the authors for choosing this topic to write on. Obviously, it's very difficult to explain the concept of self acceptance to kids but with the help of this vibrant picture book you don't have to worry about that. The story is very short and to the point. It's in a very simple language for youngsters to understand. There's a cute and colourful picture on every alternate page which will keep the interest of children intact. I really recommend you to gift Avocado the Turtle this Christmas to any kid you know.

Cutest book I came across.

This book is simply too sweet. I loved people who encourage the hobby of reading among their children. I, being a book lover, knows the advantage of reading at every step. Kiara Shankar, a 13-yo has written this simple and sweet story with beautiful graphics and illustrations. I'm truly moved by it all.

Must read for kids!!!

Avocado the turtle by Kiara and vinay shankar is the story about a turtle named avocado. Avocado is teased by the turtle community because of her name and also because she likes to talk.

One day the turtle community decides to kicked out avocado. She becomes very upset due to this but eventually makes new friends who understands her and loves to be with her.

The cover of this book is very eye catching and the language is very simple to understand.

The book is only 43 pages including illustrations so it's a very small book and won't bore you at all.

I liked the illustrations. they are very colourful and interesting.

The overall message given from this book is very good and inspiring.

I will definitely recommend this book for kids.
