So when he returned he to tried to assemble a birdhouse in his garage. The first three attempts were a disaster. One birdhouse had a roof that was too small, another had no entrance and the third house looked like a house with a hole in the roof. He sighed. He was useless as a builder.
The fourth birdhouse was perfect but steve came and broke it. But the fifth one was also perfect and this time steve did not break it.
So, he hooked it on a tree branch and he sighed while he wiped his forehead. Maybe he wasn’t cut out to be a builder. He put his tools back in the metal toolbox and place it high on a shelf in the garage, feeling defeated. As he walked by a birdhouse competition sheet. He looked at it and thought, “How can I enter a competition if i can’t even build a simple birdhouse?”
Bob headed to the library. There must be some hobby he could do, but he doubted if any would be as enticing as building. When he arrived at the library he grabbed a random book and read it:
LEGEND OF THE PUFFIN
“Many many years ago when animals could talk, Puffin lived near the ocean. Puffin was a sad bird jealous of mighty Eagle who could dive into the waves and catch tuna and halibut.
One day, he decided to ask Eagle to teach him how to catch fish. So when he came to Eagle, Puffin said, “Hello Eagle, can you teach me how to fly please?”
So he said: ”Sure but it’s hard.”So Puffin did everything Eagle told him but he still couldn’t swim because he didn’t actually believe that he would ever be able to swim underwater. Finally Eagle gave up and soared into the air, leaving Puffin on the rocks where the Puffin colony was watching its eggs.
As Puffin walked to his nest, he had tripped on a rock and hit a egg and it fell in the water! Something amazing happened after. He dove toward the sea hoping to find it,
and he did! But while he was finding the egg he thought “wow! I wonder if all my friends like robin, owl and bluejay could fly in the water like me?”
When he came out everyone was very worried that the egg wasn't safe but when they saw it in his wing, they were relieved. After a few months, a little puffling hatched from the egg puffin saved. He came to puffin and said “Hey, I remembered how you saved me. I was really scared at first but when I saw you I saw you swim really fast and want to learn how!” So puffin told him everything you need to do and soon, the whole colony knew how to “fly” in the water.
So that’s the legend of how puffins learned how to “fly” in the water.”
