Coqui box


My object is a Coqui box. A Coqui box is a special item to all Puerto Ricans because the Coqui frog is their national animal.                                         The Coqui frogs are almost extinct because the Coqui frogs traveled to Hawaii and were so loud at night that they started to kill them by drowning them with a bucket of water. The Coqui box is special to my family because it is a item from Puerto Rico and my great grandmother brought it from Puerto Rico and it is very special to her and to my grandmother ever since they are both from Puerto Rico. My uncle also has one. 
A Coqui box is a rectangular box that has inside a frog with a spring at the bottom and moves back and forward and plays the noise of the Coqui frog and sometimes it has a small map of Puerto Rico. The Coqui box is important to me and my whole family.

Place(s): Puerto Rico
Year: 1951
