9781463427269: African Stories About The Tortoise

The stories in this book are a collection of animal stories about people. They focus on the tortoise who is a small, but a smart animal who has to prove himself to other animals who are bigger and more powrful than he. But, the tortoise is also very cunning. Some of the stories explain how the tortoise uses his wit to perform extraordinary acts, and overcome obstacles, even though he is small, and walks very slowly. The tortoise is constantly being tested by people and other animals who want to prove him to be worthless. In "The Tortoise and the Hare" "The race started and the hare ran like the wind, leaving the tortoise behind". Each of us is unique, and we have our individual talents, just like animals. The tortoise is constantly in competition with other animals who try to discredit him. So, the tortoise always has to prove his worth. But, his actions speak louder than the words of his haters. Take examples from the tortoise, and use your strengths and skills to do well. Copy the good traits that the tortoise exhibits, and show others that you are worthy and can do anything if you put your mind to it. We are not all the same size, and we don't all look alike; but we are all talented in different ways that show our unique intelligences. Some of us are artistic, some of us are atheletic, and the list goes on. Read the stories to learn how you can prove your worth. Also, learn about how people live in another culture, and learn to appreciate their lifestyle.
