27 Comments



Turtle’s Flute A Brazilian folktale Once upon a time, Turtle played her flute on the banks of a river. When Turtle played, all the animals listened. lions, elephants, butterflies, snakes and monkeys danced to Turtle’s music. One day, a man heard Turtle’s music. “Ahh,” he thought. that must be Turtle making music. Turtle would taste
very good right now.” Turtle would taste
very good right now.” So he called out: “Turtle! Show me your
beautiful flute.” Turtle walked slowly to the door and held out her flute. But the moment the man
saw Turtle, he grabbed her by the neck and began to run. Turtle tried to cry for help, but she couldn’t make a sound. She closed her eyes holding tightly to her flute for good luck. When the man reached his hut he put Turtle into a cage and shut it. Then he turned to his children “Don’t let Turtle out of her cage.” And off he went to the fields. The children began to play outside. Turtle sat very still inside her cage thinking about the father’s words. She began to play a sweet tune on her flute and the children ran to the cage. “Is that you playing, Turtle?” they asked, their eyes wide with wonder. their eyes wide with wonder. “Yes,” Turtle said. She kept on playing, for she could see the children were delighted. At last she stopped. “I can dance even better than I can play,” she said. “Would you like to see?” “Oh, please!” the little boy cried. “I’ll show you how to dance and play at the same time,” said Turtle. “But you must open the cage. There is no room in here.” So the little boy opened the cage and Turtle began to play and dance. The children laughed and clapped their hands, for never had they seen such a wonderful thing. Then Turtle stopped playing… “Don’t stop!” the children cried. Turtle groaned. “My legs are stiff. If I could just walk
a little bit to loosen them …” “Don’t go too far,” the little girl cautioned. “Come right back.” “Never fear,” said Turtle; “You wait right here.” Turtle crawled off toward the jungle and the moment she was out of sight, she was out of sight, she raced all the way back
to her house. Nobody ever found Turtle again. But if you strain your ear, you can hear the sweet sound of a flute in the forest.

    Hi Daisy. For both subtitles you can download the video from our website bookbox [dot] com. Hope you like!

    There may not be room for both English and Spanish sub-titles and this might be the best way to learn a language, after all. The text is fairly easy in itself, especially with the aid of the pictures and the expression of the voice. This is wonderful.

    The english subs are not needed if you guys take a dictionary (online for example) and write down each new word. It is even an additional exercise.

  12. Mrah says:

  15. Max P Visuals says:

    horrible audio compression on the voice in this one, unlistenable. others in this series are great though!! thanks 🙂

  16. Cecilia Lund says:

    I’m learning Spanish on Doulingo and I wanted to listen to Spanish while doing homework so I could better understand it. Thank you for the great video and I loved the story. The only adjustment I would make would be to keep the subtitles for longer so I have more time to read them and associate them with the words spoken! Thanks again!

  17. Miss WOG Daily says:

    Loved this video. I would love to know the name of the man who's reading the story he has a great voice. I would love to hear him read more books.

  18. Miss WOG Daily says:

    Some of the translations are off. There's more accurate English words that could be used to describe what it's saying in Spanish.

  19. Miss WOG Daily says:

    What happened to the English text! Some of us love to see it to help us understand the story.

  20. Maria Avalos says:

  22. kahea2018 says:

    Thank you for the subtitles in BOTH languages!

  23. Colette N. says:

    There's a mistake in the subtitles:
    0:55 it should be "un día" not "una día", because día is masculine.

  24. Vinay Tandel says:

    I am learning Spanish. May I request you to share the Spanish script of this story so that I can read it and simultaneously here the same. "Gracias…"

  25. tina wong says:

  26. Don Benoit says:
