I love reading folklore. This story tells how the turtle got the patches on his shell. This is a wonderful story that teaches children the importance of compassion, community service, not being greedy, doing the right thing, sharing, caring for community. The story is told to a group of children by a wise woman of their village. When famine his the animal kingdom the lion calls a meeting and they decide to find food and share it. However, the turtle sets out with great intentions but becomes greedy and doesn't share with his fellow animals as agreed. This is a story that children and adults of all ages will enjoy reading over and over. The cool thing is that this story book has coloring pages within it. I look forward to reading more by this author.
