While he was growing up, Tsuro, the bunny rabbit, learned the hard way to treat others as he wanted to be treated by them. Being street smart is good, but it’s not always the best way to live with others. As children, we must never look down on people. We can learn something from our friends no matter how different they are. Amazingly, Kamba, the turtle proved that slow is the new fast. I, Victoria Taurai Kandimba, a mother of four, born and raised in rural Zimbabwe am a natural storyteller. I was inspired by my grandparents who were great folk storytellers as I grew up. I moved to the USA in 2000. In the warm evenings, in a dimly lit hut, after dinner, my two grandmothers, Mandisiya and Taurai, would entertain the family with these folk stories while we shelled peanuts. Everyone took part in discussions to discipline or praise characters in these tales and we thoroughly enjoyed it. They were parables that taught children to grow into good responsible people.
