4Today’s Read Aloud Friends Turtle was swimming along among the lily pads. It was right in the middle of the pond, where the sun was warm and everything was peaceful. Suddenly something bumped into him and water splashed up into his face. “Who is that?” he called out in his little voice. “It’s just me. I’m Ellie,” came the reply. “If you’d look behind you, you’d see that I’m an elephant.” Turtle wasn’t used to finding other creatures in the pond. The truth was, it was quite a lonely pond for him. He just hadn’t really thought about how lonely he was until he heard the elephant speak to him. “Yes,” he finally said, “I can see that you are an elephant. And I’m a turtle. I swim a lot, but sometimes I sit on the rocks to warm up.”
5Friends“Well,” said Ellie, “maybe we could be friends. I visit this pond sometimes to keep cool. It’s awfully lonely here, don’t you think?Soon, Turtle and Ellie were the best of friends, swimming and playing together whenever they could. This just goes to show that, sometimes, new friends can make quite a splash.
