C'est un petit livre émouvant sur l'importance de remarquer dans le monde. Le frère et la soeur de Charlie l'appellent "tortue", car il est toujours s'arrêtant pour regarder quelque chose d'intéressant au lieu de garder avec eux. Charlie est très intéressé par tout ce qu'il voit et veut partager son intérêt avec eux, mais ils sont impatients, à la hâte. Alors que Mamie sait les voies de Charlie et lui tire, grand-papa tire une leçon de la conversation, ce qui confirme le point de vue de Charlie, et les frères et soeurs viennent l'admirer.

Young Charlie is a First Nations boy who stops to notice what is going on around him. His older brother and sister, who are always in a hurry to get somewhere, call him “Turtle” and tell him to hurry up. But Turtle stops to see, hear and smell. Throughout the story, the reader is invited to guess what Turtle finds and puts in his bucket. All is revealed in the end as Turtle shows his family his “treasures”. Even his brother and sister are convinced that it pays to be more aware.
