We are proud to introduce “Mississippi’s Fred the Turtle” to students across our state. “Mississippi’s Fred the Turtle” is an activity book which tells the story of a sea turtle who finds himself on a unique journey across our state with his newfound friend, Fisherman Jimmy.

Throughout his road-trip, Fred asks students to take part in a variety of fun activities, such as coloring, a word search puzzle, a maze, and connect the dots. More importantly, Fred poses a series of questions designed to encourage students to take part in engaging and thought-provoking conversations that are critical to child development and the bolstering of problem-solving skills.

Fred has already found a home in several fourth grade classrooms in Mississippi thanks to a generous grant provided by the Casey Family Programs. However, our goal is to place Fred in the hands of even more Mississippi students. We would love to have you partner with us to help continue teaching our children the importance of staying mentally and physically healthy along with a range of other valuable lessons.
