Winner of the Moonbeam Children's Bronze Book Award (2014)

Based on the international rescue effort to save earth’s most endangered sea turtles, Every Turtle Counts portrays the plight of the Kemp’s ridleys, born on just one beach in Mexico, which strand each year on the north side of Cape Cod. When Mimi discovers a turtle, not moving, not breathing, she, alone, believes it can be saved. Against fearful odds, a girl who has always lived in her own world, proves that turtles, as well as people, should be helped to fulfill their purpose.

“A lovely book that will motivate children to seek the wonder and beauty of the natural world.”
—Temple Grandin, author, Animals in Translation

“ . . . warm and heartfelt. . . about nurturing all that’s good, and about each individual's ability and right to live and grow and succeed.”
—Andrew Clements, author of best-selling children’s books: Frindle, No Talking, Lunch Money, and Extra Credit

Review:

"Hunter (The Lighthouse Santa) introduces a seven-year-old autistic girl named Mimi, who discovers a sea turtle on the beach in Cape Cod and refuses to leave it there. "Dead as a doornail," insists one of the locals, but a representative of the Massachusetts Audubon Society gives Mimi hope when he's called to pick up the turtle: it may just be "cold-shocked" after being trapped in the waters of the cape. Hunter gives an honest, unsentimental portrait of Mimi's developmental difficulties, and the emotional range of Spellman's (Oscar the Herring Gull) watercolors underscore the important connection Mimi makes with the rescued turtle, Ridley 3. After Ridley 3 is moved to an aquarium to rehabilitate, Mimi tries to help feed it with tongs. " ‘Eat, turtle,' she said, tickling the sides of its mouth.... It was the first time Mimi had ever put her own sentence together." In a moving epilogue set 30 years in the future, Mimi re-appears as an adult scientist, driving home the idea that the oft-repeated message of the title applies to more than just turtles. Ages 5–9."—Publishers Weekly

"a captivating and compelling new book with an unusual twist -- its heroine is autistic....beautifully illustrated...tells the story of an extraordinary environmental occurrence"—Henry Miller, Huffington Post

"A perfectly paced adventure....the book is a thoughtful, beautifully illustrated way to teach kids about thinking outside their own understanding of the world to help others."—Lane Brown, Christian Science Monitor

“An enchanting picture book about a young girl who finds strength in helping animals. . . the matter-of-fact, compassionate depiction of Mimi’s special needs is both child friendly and honest. The author’s gentle voice rings just as clearly in her explanation of endangered sea turtles . . . this beautifully written story may help inspire a new generation of open-minded activists.”—Kirkus Review
