“The Animal” is an adorable story about a child who finds an animal he decides would make good company for him. While he is bringing his new friend home he tells another friend on the way home about his new friend, but he doesn’t tell them what the animal is. The friend’s imagination is working over time and she runs to tell another friend about the animal. The children keep passing the story along and the tail keeps getting longer with the children’s imaginations. Pretty soon the kids are certain that the boy who has the animal must be in great danger and they rush over to save him. “The Animal”, is a turtle, the kids must feel a little sheepish at how they let there fears run away from them. This sweet story gives the teacher the opportunity to have the classroom study turtles; why do they have hard shells, what they eat, how big will they get, and where do they come from.
