This story is about Hermit the Crab. Hermit the Crab shell was getting too small. So he took it off and went to find another shell. Hermit the Crab found a medium size shell. He put it on his back and he found some weeds and then he put one on his shell. He also found a starfish and put it on his shell. Hermit's shell was getting full and he was getting to big and he had to find another shell. Hermit thought I don't want to leave my friends. Then Hermit saw another crab, and he said that she could have his shell if she took care of his friends. She said ok, so Hermit the crab went to find a bigger shell.

I like the story because I got it from the library. I also like the pictures in the story.

I would tell other people to read the story because they would like the pictures.
