Once upon a time there was a turtle named Franklin. He asked his mom if he could go to Bear's house. His mom told him to be back by 6:00. When Franklin got to Bear's house they played hide and seek. Bear told Franklin that he was it. Franklin was not fast, but he knew where everyone was hiding. He found Bear in the bushes. Then he found Otter and Goose by then pond. The problem was he couldn't find Fox. He looked everywhere. Finally he wandered off into the forest. Af first he did not think it was scary but then he realized he was lost!At the end his parents found him and everyone was happy!

Our favorite part of the story is when Franklin is saved in the forest by his parents because it is a happy ending. Our favorite character is Franklin's mom because she is a really brave turtle. This story relates to our lives because both of us have been lost before. We like the pictures in the book because they give more information.

We think others should read this book because everyone will learn that their mom and dad will find them when then get lost. They will love this book!
