The Rabbit and the Turtle | Moral Stories For Kids


One day a rabbit was boasting about how fast he could run. He was laughing at the turtle for being so slow. Much to the rabbit’s surprise, the turtle challenged him to a race. The rabbit thought this was a good joke and accepted the challenge. The fox was the umpire of the race. As the race began, the rabbit raced way ahead of the turtle, just like everyone thought.

The rabbit reached the halfway point and he could not see the turtle anywhere. It was very hot. The rabbit felt very tired and so decided to take a break and take a (short) nap. Even if the turtle passed him, he would be able to race to the finish line and run ahead of him. All this time, the turtle kept walking step-by- step. He decided not to quit no matter how hot or tired he was. He just kept going.

However, the rabbit slept longer than he had thought. When he woke up, he could not see the turtle anywhere! He raced at full speed to the finish line but he found the turtle there waiting for him.
