Meet Thurgood Turtle

Hello, everyone. My name is Thurgood Turtle and I am 4 years old. I love to play all kinds of games with my friends, but my favorite is golf—just like Tiger Woods. My grandpa taught me how to play, and now I’m teaching my friends! What game do you like to play with your friends?

My Nana and Pop Pop and little brother Ted live with me in our house on Friendship Circle. My Nana has a computer that she lets me use when I’m finished helping clean up. It’s so bad when the computer isn’t working—but at least I know I can always go outside and play with my friends!

I love to play games and learn things on the computer, but I also like to read books. Whenever my friends want to know something, they come to me because they know I’ll have the right book with the right answer!

If you want to, you can send me an e-mail and tell me what you would like to learn from a book.
