The Tortoise And The Ducks​

Of course, you probably know that the poor old tortoise has to carry his house around on his back. That means that no matter how hard he tries he can’t ever leave home or go very far.

Once upon a time, there was a tortoise who saw how happily birds could fly around wherever they wanted. He saw how quickly rabbits hopped about here and there and how all the other animals could run as fast and as far as they liked.

The tortoise felt very sad, as he wanted to see as much of the world as all the other animals. But he was stuck, with his house on his back and his little legs that couldn’t carry him along very fast or far.

One day as he was walking slowly along by a pond he met two ducks and told them how sorry he was that he couldn’t go very far or see as much of the world as they could.
