This is a tale of two best friends that have been together since they were born, even though they are from different species of animals. They were raised up by Karimah, the rhino, their adoptive mother. Karimah taught them English and manners.
The love of a mother
On a rainy day in Ghana, the two best friends were playing around. There was Chizoba, the african eagle who has the ability to see into the future. There was also Batú, the fastest leopard in the jungle.
Batu, you are going to regreat not to appreciate what you have.
What are you talking about? You don't know what you are saying.
Later that day, Karimah, known for her power of wisdom, says that she has a great idea for a game. Chizoba and Batu accepted to play the game.
The game is a race between both of you. You two will have to run, the winner will have the chance to ask me any question you want and I will provide you the answer.
Batu and Chizoba competed to ask Karimah their question. It was a very difficult competition but at the end Batu won the race. Batu always wanted to ask why his brothers left him in the middle of the jungle? Karimah knew the answer and she told him.
Your brothers hated you because you were adopted. I am sorry Batu.
How could you keep this secret from me all this time? I'm going to look for my true parents.
Batu left his mother and Chizoba. He spent two weeks looking for his parents but he could not find them. Batu decided to come back home and apologize for all his mistakes.
I always wanted you to be happy and forget all the bad memories. I love you my son.
Karimah, my mother, I am sorry for leaving the only place I feel secure and loved.
Moral lesson: Always appreciate the love you get no matter where it comes from. Questions: 1. Is Batu a legitimate child of Karimah? 2. Who has the ability to see into the future? 3. How many weeks Batu looking for his parents? 4. If you're Karimah? What will you do in that situation?
