The activetcl instructions in the book are obsolete.  The 3.8 python.org 
macOS installer comes with a recent version of tcl/tk (8.6.8) compiled 
to work with the 3.8 that it installs.  Another tcl/tk binary may not work.

First, when running IDLE, select on the menu IDLE and About IDLE.  What 
is the tk version? It should be 8.6.8.

Second, start Terminal and enter
... $ python3.8 -m turtle
This should start a turtle demo that draws and erases two patterns.

Any of the following.

import turtle
import turtle as t
from turtle import *
