Have you ever read the book “The Tortoise and the Hare”? I am pretty sure we all have right? Who always wins the race? The slow, humble, diligent tortoise, or the loud, cocky, boasting hare? If you have read the book then you know it is the tortoise. Why do you think that is?
What do you think the writer of this fable was trying to teach us? Who was the teaching for? Was it just for the kids or the adults too? Do you think the writer was trying to communicate to both the children and the adults at the same time? Was there a simple beautiful message that if learned and applied at a very young age could change our lives forever?
