About the show: Blanding is an endangered turtle in search of a new habitat. Each spring she leaves her wetland and travels to a nearby sandy hill where she lays her eggs. When a new road is built between the wetland and the hill, what will she do? With the help from her friend Castor the Beaver she may just be able to fix her problems! Hand puppets.

Recommended for ages 4 and up.

"The children at the Wellesley Nursery School in the Hills were mesmerized by Deborah Costine's newly developed puppet show, Turtle's New Home. This creative and educational puppet show not only captures the childrens' interests but gives them very important information about making new friends, treasuring old friends and being respectful of animals within their habitats." -- Ginny Smith Alterio, Wellesley Nursery School, Pre-K
