Tiny Todd the Turtle by Kenn Nesbitt

My turtle’s name is Tiny Todd.
He’s Tiny Todd the turtle.
And Tiny Todd the turtle’s favorite
game to play is Wordle.

He has to guess a random word
by typing on his phone.
He’s never lost a single game.
His record stands alone.

He starts it every morning
and he plays till late at night.
It always takes him all day long
to get the answer right.

He tries to play it fast, and yet
his pace is just a crawl,
since Tiny Todd the turtle’s
still a turtle after all.
