Franklin Helps Out
By: Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark

Review by: Robin Hatfield

     Franklin the turtle and his class are going on a nature hike and Franklin always tries to be helpful. Usually this is good thing-but today he was a little too helpful. Mr. Owl takes the class into the woods and each student is supposed to bring something back to add to the school nature display. One of Franklin's friends, Snail, moves at his own pace. Franklin tries to help Snail keep up and gives him a ride on his shell, while Snail was still exploring. Franklin didn't listen to his friend when he said he was looking for something special. Everyone was busy exploring and gathering their items for the display while Snail never really had the chance. Franklin was sharing his discoveries with Snail, from leaves, pebbles and seeds, making Snail's bag very heavy. Finally, when it is time to go back to school, Snail announces he hasn't found anything on his own and then sets off on his own. Franklin is puzzled, he didn't understand what he had done wrong. Beaver helps Franklin see that Snail may be slower or may do things differently, but he is still good at doing things for himself. Franklin realized then that it is good to help, but sometimes we need to ask first, before we hurt someone's feelings. The Franklin stories are sure to become some of your child's favorites. I recommend them for any child ages 3 and up.
