Each week, The Sentinel publishes stories we receive to prompts in Kids World and on www.cumberlink.com. This week’s Kids Speak Out prompt was “If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to ...”

“If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to a snake because I could say, ‘Can you be my pet please?’ If he would say yes, I would put him in a cage and take him on a walk. His name would be Lucky because he would be very good. He would be green—that is my favorite color—and a snake can move without legs. That is cool.”

“If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to a horse because I take lessons with horses and I just want to talk to them and see how their day is, see how their life is interesting, why they’re ... happy and see if they would go somewhere fun—maybe go to Hersheypark or go riding.”

“If could talk to any animal, I would talk to a cat because they are cute and they can see in the dark, they are better than dogs and they eat fish.”

“If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to a penguin because penguins are my favorite animal, and I could swim with them, slide on ice and, best of all, I could keep one as a pet.”

“If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to turtles because I love turtles. They are also endangered, so I will do anything for a turtle. I might even pick up trash for them.”

“If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to a shark so then it could feed me (and) take me all over the world. It could take to me to Maryland and wherever you want. Plus, I would touch it and it will give my oxygen. And I would live happily ever after.”

“If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to a dog. Dogs are my favorite animal. I love them so much. I would talk about what kind of dog it is. I would love that so much. I love pit bulls. They are super cute.”

“If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to a monkey because I really like monkeys. Also because I would want to eat bananas with the monkey because I know monkeys love bananas. I would just want to talk with one.”

“If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to a dolphin, a cat, a dog, and a bunny. I would talk to them all day. And I would talk to a butterfly. They would love to talk to me. I wish I could actually talk to animals in real life.”

“If I could talk to any animal, I would talk to a dog because I’m scared of dogs, and so I would know why they bark when someone comes through the door. Another reason why I would talk to dogs is I would tell the dogs, ‘Can you be a little nicer to humans?’”
