“ Once upon a time, in a green forest, there was a tortoise and a hare. The tortoise was slow, and the hare was fast. One sunny day, the hare said, “am the fastest! Let’s race!” The tortoise agreed, and they started the race. The hare ran quickly and soon left the tortoise behind.

The hare thought, “I am so fast! I can take a nap.“ So, the hare slept under a tree. But the tortoise kept going. Slowly but steadily, he walked and walked. When the hare woke up, he saw the tortoise near the finish line. The hare ran fast, but the tortoise won! The animals cheered for the tortoise. They learned that being slow and steady can win.
