Myrtle the Turtle Discovers Hug Power

Myrtle the Turtle is jealous of her older brother, Yertle. He can swim faster and go places she can’t go, and he understands the funny things their parents say. It just does not seem fair.

So one day Myrtle decides to go exploring on her own, swimming across the reef toward the back side, where the water is deep. She ignores a warning from inside herself—an “uh-oh” feeling—that she should not go out there. When her family realizes she is gone, they are alarmed; they find her, scold her, and bring her home. Myrtle feels ashamed, and then she feels she must be bad, so she hides. But Mama Turtle helps her understand what she’s feeling so that she knows what to do the next time she has that “uh-oh” feeling and then gives her a big hug to transform the shame monster. Can Myrtle use her new knowledge with her cousins the next time they want to play in the deep water?
