The Owl and the Rabbits: Sour Grapes*

Please scroll below pictures for the story.

Once upon a time, there was a wise old owl named Mary who lived in a big park called Richmond Park in London. One day, Mary gathered the rabbit family and told them a story about a fox who wanted to eat some grapes but couldn’t reach them. He got mad and said “those grapes are probably sour anyway.”

Mary explained that this story is about when you want something but can’t have it and then make an excuse for not getting it. She told the rabbits that it’s important to be happy with what you have and not to compare yourself to others. She encouraged the rabbits to be grateful for what they have and not to always focus on what they don’t have.

The rabbits listened to Mary and they learned a valuable lesson. They realized that it’s better to be happy with what you have than to always want more. From that day on, the rabbits were happy and content with what they had and Mary the wise owl was always there to guide them and tell them stories that taught them valuable lessons.

The Owl and the Rabbits: Fast vs Slow*

Once upon a time, in a forest, there was a wise old owl named Mary. All the animals in the forest would come to her for advice and guidance.

One day, a group of young bunnies came to Mary and asked her to tell them a story. Mary thought for a moment. She remembered a story a wise man called Aesop told her. Mary began to speak.

“Once upon a time, there was a rabbit named Speedy and a turtle named Slowpoke,” she said. “Speedy was very fast and loved to brag about how fast he could run. Slowpoke, on the other hand, was slow but steady.

One day, Speedy decided to challenge Slowpoke to a race. He laughed and said, ‘There’s no way you can win, you’re too slow!’ But Slowpoke accepted the challenge.

The day of the race arrived and Speedy took off quickly, leaving Slowpoke behind. But Speedy got too confident and took a nap during the race. When he woke up, he saw Slowpoke crossing the finish line first.

The moral of the story is that slow and steady wins the race. Don’t be like Speedy and brag all the time. Instead, be like Slowpoke and work hard and you will be successful in the end.”

The young bunnies were very impressed and thanked Mary for the story. From that day on, they remembered the story of Speedy and Slowpoke and worked hard to achieve their goals.

The Owl and the Rabbits: Comparing with Others*

Once upon a time, there was a wise old owl named Mary who lived in a big park called Richmond Park in London. One day, there was a big snowstorm and it was hard for all the animals to find food and stay warm. Mary knew that everyone had to work together to survive.

The foxes knew how to find food in the snow and they taught the rabbits. The rabbits knew how to make shelters to stay warm and they taught the foxes. Together, they were able to survive the storm.

Mary saw that some of the rabbits were feeling bad because they weren’t as good at hunting as the foxes. So, she taught the rabbits that everyone has different talents and it’s important to focus on what you’re good at and not compare yourself to others.

She also said that comparing yourself to others is not a good idea because everyone has their own struggles and it’s not fair to compare yourself based on what you see on the outside. She taught them to focus on their own progress and growth and to be proud of themselves for their own accomplishments no matter how small.

The rabbits listened to Mary and they stopped comparing themselves to the foxes and others. They focused on being the best version of themselves and being helpful to others. From that day on, all the animals in Richmond Park, London worked together and were happy. And Mary the wise owl was always there to guide them and remind them to treat themselves and others with kindness and respect.
