Are you ready to learn about turtles? There are many different kinds of turtles! Some are big, and some are small. Some live in the ocean, and some live on land! No matter where they are or what they look
like, all turtles are reptiles, like snakes, alligators, and lizards. Like other reptiles, turtles have scaly skin,
but turtles are special because they have a strong, hard shell covering their back. Many kinds of turtles can hide their head
and their legs inside their shell to protect themselves. Come on, turtle! It’s okay! You can come out now! Some turtles, like sea turtles, cannot go
into their shell. All turtles lay eggs. Even turtles that live in the water come to
shore to lay their eggs on land. If you want to see a turtle, look around carefully
when you go outside. Turtles live in many places and there are
probably turtles that live near you. Goodbye, turtles!
