One day, Serah noticed her friend Toby the Turtle seemed downhearted. 'Why the long face, Toby?' chirped Serah. 'I've lost my home,' replied Toby with a sigh. The river flooded, and my burrow was washed away.

Without a second thought, Serah offered to share her nest with Toby. 'But Serah, I'll take up so much space,' worried Toby. 'Do not fret, my friend,' Serah sang. 'We'll make room!'

Sparrows build nests that serve as their homes.

Rabbits are known for their ability to hop using their strong hind legs.
