The Turtle that Carries a House Around

Do you know why the turtle carries a heavy shell around?

That is the turtle’s house.

Let’s find out why the turtle carries around a heavy house.

The mountain god held a party one day.

“I am holding a party today. All animals, come and enjoy the party.”

The animals heard of the party and all came.

They sang and danced and showed off their talents.

But the turtle did not go to the party.

“Hmph. What a pain. I won’t go to the party.”

The turtle felt bothered to go to the party.

It stayed at home all day rolling about.

The mountain god realized the turtle had not come.

“Why isn’t the turtle here?”

The fox answered. “The turtle did not come, sir.”

“What? How dare he is. Tell the turtle to come see me tomorrow.”

The next day, the turtle went to the mountain god.

“Why didn’t you come to my party?”

The turtle answered with a frustrated voice.

“I like my home better than such parties.”

The mountain god was very angry when he heard this.

“Is that so? Then I’ll let you stay at home all the time.”

A very heavy shell formed on the turtle’ s back.

From then on, the turtle had to carry his house on his back. [NoPage]
