A baby turtle was standing at the bottom of a large tree.
With a deep sigh he started to climb.
About an hour later, he reached a very high branch and
walked along to the end. He turned -spread out all four
flippers and launched himself off the branch.
With a thud he landed at the bottom - luckily on a pile of
soft, dead leaves. He shook himself off, walked back to the
bottom of the tree and bravely began to climb again.

walked along, turned, spread his flippers and flung himself

two little birds.
Mummy bird turned to Daddy bird and said, "Don't you think
it's time we told him he was adopted?"
