BC: A greedy little turtle learns a valuable lesson.
FC: Mim's Lesson
1: There once was a little turtle named Mim who lived with his mom. He wanted to have all the toys in the world.
2: All he ever did was play all day. Always asking Momma for more toys.
3: Momma was not making much money so she could not buy Mim toys.
4: Mim was very angry.
5: He was so mad that he yelled at his Momma and walked out the door.
6: Mim ran away. He said, "If Momma can't give me toys, then I'll go find some myself!"
7: Momma became sad. She loved Mim. She was scared that something might happen to him.
8: "I can get anything I want," grumbled Mim. "I can get the whole world by myself!"
9: He was wrong. He didn't know how to get anything.
10: All of a sudden, night came.
11: Mim was scared. He was in the middle of the woods and he was hearing strange noises.
12: Then, Mim saw a figure coming towards him.
13: As it came closer and closer, Mim got more scared.
14: All of a sudden, the figure turned into an owl. "I am Merrel the wise. Are you lost young one?" the owl said.
15: "No," Mim spoke. "I ran away. I want to have everything but I can't get anything!"
16: "That is not smart. You should be happy with what you have." Merrel said.
17: With this, Mim realized he should go home. He tried to thank Merrel the Wise but he already flew away.
18: Mim came home to see his Momma crying. He could tell she missed him.
19: Mim came in and hugged his Momma. He learned to be happy with what he has.
