Where Did the Turtles Go? follows an observant girl's seek-and-find mission, creating an opportunity to build awareness of the natural world in St. Louis's famed Forest Park.

"Out the door, down the stairs, across the street, over the bridge."

Her eager dog is a constant companion along the way. As the seasons change, their journey sparks curiosity and ultimately a realization that what has seemingly disappeared is not lost.

About the Author

Katie Lerwick, illustrated by Caroline Kraus

Katie Lerwick started writing stories for children when her son and daughter were in preschool. Their imaginations and curiosity brought to life unique characters and scenarios created through their play, and inspired Lerwick to weave what she recalled into a picture book adventure for her kids to look back on and for all children to enjoy.

Lerwick lives in St. Louis, Missouri, right next to Forest Park, where children still explore and dream, and Where Did the Turtles Go? was born.
