Today the story is about a turtle. This turtle wants to see the world. But he’s a turtle. How can he see the world? Let’s start the story.
The Turtle and 2 Birds
Turtles are funny. Why? Because the turtle has a house on his back. The house on his back is called his shell. The turtle sees the dogs run. The turtle sees the birds fly. And the turtle is sad. Why? The turtle cannot run. The turtle cannot fly. Because his house is on his back. He cannot go to faraway places. One day the turtle sees his two bird friends. He says, “I am sad because I cannot go to faraway places. I want to see the world.” The birds say, “We can help you go to faraway places. We can help you see the world. The birds take a stick from a tree. They say “Turtle, open your mouth and bite this stick. We will take you into the sky. But do not say anything!” The turtle opens his mouth. The turtle bites the middle of the stick. Then one bird bites the left side of the stick. Then the other bird bites the right side of the stick. The birds fly into the sky. And the birds take the turtle into the sky. The turtle sees faraway places. He sees the trees. He sees the fields. He sees the world. Then the turtle sees a big bird. The bird flies next to him. The big bird says, “Wow! Turtle, you are great! You are a turtle King!” The turtle opens his mouth. He says, “Yes I am” Then the turtle falls out of the sky. The turtle falls out of the sky into the river. He looks at the sky. He says, “One day I will fly into the sky again. And I will not open my mouth!” The End.
I hope one day the turtle flies again. The turtle knows he cannot fly alone. He needs to hold on to his friends. With help from friends, even a turtle can fly.
