Reader Description

That Coyote! He thinks he's clever. But he's always in trouble. Some other animals play tricks on Coyote. He tries to be clever and trick them, too, but then he gets into more trouble. Do you think he'll ever learn?

Retell the "Coyote and Turtle" story from pages 14 to 19. Imagine that Coyote believes Turtle when she says that she wasn't singing. What would happen next? Write a new ending.
