Module 9 & 10 Story #6


Whatever will I do with myself now that I don’t have a story to post about? 🙂


What is it?” asked Brian.

“It’s a Sand Dollar,” Dad explained.

“Why didn’t we find any earlier?” asked Mandy, disappointed. “I would have liked to see more. They’re pretty.”

Pretty?” asked Dad, looking down at hairy, black circle on his palm.

“Yes, very. Can we take it home?”

“No, we can’t take it home. We can’t take living creatures.”

“Oh, dear! That means I can’t take my kelp!”

“Um, kelp isn’t a living creature, Mandy-girl. You can take that home—you might be able to press it in our dictionary. And if we find a white Sand Dollar, we can take that too.”

“No, Daddy, kelp is alive. Katie told me it was.”

“Well, I suppose you could say plants are alive,” Dad said patiently. “They just don’t want us to take animals—plants are fine.”

“But they’re not plants either, Daddy.”

“I suppose Katie told you that?”

“Yes, she did. Kelp is not in Kingdom Plantae. It’s in Kingdom Protista. It’s algae, not Protozoa, though, so it doesn’t act like an animal. So. . . do you think they’ll let me keep it?”

“Yes, I think so. And, just between you and me, they’ll probably tell you you can take it home because they’ll think it’s a plant.”

The End


So, what did you think?  I’d love to hear your thoughts! 🙂

  1. I SO loved this story, Hanna! I think I might have liked it better because Katie and her little sister were both in it, so Katie was doing most of the teaching. In your other stories I think the grown-ups were doing the teaching, it was fun to have your main character doing it this time 🙂 .
    Oh, and I know exactly what story-related thing you can do next 🙂 … you can give us a sneak peak of ‘The Sacrifice’! #WishfulThinking 🙂
    Anyways, this story was so awesome, and I can’t wait for … whatever it is you post next! ~Savannah

    1. Yes, they were all grown-ups before. That’s interesting. . . thanks for your in-put!
      I am actually thinking about giving a sneak-peek, but I can’t find a good quote to use, that’s interesting but doesn’t give any spoilers, because I don’t want to give ANYTHING (else) away! 🙂
