Back to School with Franklin
Franklin is a growing young turtle who, as his television stories and books always begin, “…could count by twos and tie his shoes”. He goes to school, lives in a small village with his friends, and has many adventures playing and learning in the world around him, sometimes with the helping hand of an adult or his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Turtle. Franklin likes swimming, arts and crafts (especially drawing), and loves shoofly pie. He’s been known to be afraid of the dark and of thunderstorms. Franklin has a best friend named Bear. Franklin also has a blue blanket and a blue stuffed dog named Sam. Every night he sleeps with his blanket and Sam. During the thunder storms when Franklin is scared Sam and his blue blanket help keep him calm.
