The Story

Once upon a time, there was a turtle named Toby who lived in a small pond. Toby was a very curious turtle, and he loved to explore. One day, Toby was exploring the edge of the pond when he saw something he had never seen before a human child!

The child was a little girl, and she was sitting on a rock, fishing. Toby was fascinated by the child, and he slowly crawled closer to her. The child didn’t see Toby at first, but when she did, she smiled and said, “Hello, little turtle. What’s your name?”

Toby was so surprised that he almost fell over. He had never met a human before, and he didn’t know what to say. But then he remembered his name, and he said, “My name is Toby.”

The child laughed and said, “That’s a nice name. I’m Emily.”

Emily and Toby talked for a long time, and Toby learned all about humans. He learned that they could talk and that they lived in big houses. He also learned that they were very curious about animals, just like he was curious about them.

When it was time for Emily to go home, she said, “I’ll come back tomorrow, and we can play together.”

Toby was so happy! He couldn’t wait to see Emily again.

The next day, Emily came back to the pond, and she brought her friend, Sarah, with her. Sarah was also a little girl, and she was just as curious about animals as Emily was.

Toby, Emily, and Sarah played together all day long. They swam in the pond, they played hide-and-seek in the bushes, and they even had a picnic lunch.

Toby had so much fun with Emily and Sarah that he forgot all about his home in the pond. He decided that he wanted to live with the humans so that he could play with them every day.

Emily and Sarah’s parents were happy to let Toby live with them, and they built him a special house in the backyard. Toby was so happy! He had a new home, and he had two new best friends.

Toby lived with Emily and Sarah for many years, and he had many more adventures. He went on picnics, he went to the beach, and he even went to the zoo. Toby loved exploring the world with his friends, and he was always learning new things.

One day, Toby was exploring the woods when he came across a group of turtles. The turtles were all very old, and they were telling stories about the old days. Toby listened to the stories, and he learned a lot about the history of turtles.

When the turtles were finished telling their stories, Toby said, “I’m so glad I met you. I’ve never met any other turtles before.”

The turtles smiled and said, “We’re glad we met you too, Toby. You’re a very special turtle.”

Toby smiled back. He knew that he was a special turtle, and he was glad that he had found a home with Emily and Sarah. He knew that he would always have his friends, and he would always have adventures.
