MR. AND MRS. TURTLE
No matter how big or small his problem is, Franklin’s parents are always there for a talk or a hug when he needs it. They stop short of telling Franklin what to do, but often nudge him in the right direction. Mr. and Mrs. Turtle have many friends and are involved in their community – Mrs. Turtle even takes over for Mr. Owl occasionally as the school’s substitute teacher!
Harriet is Franklin’s little sister. Though she has an independent streak and likes making things happen on her own, she looks up to her big brother and always wants to include him in her games.
