Teaches the lesson that we all have something to offer. Sometimes when you do good for others people take advantage of you. Keep giving anyways. ( )

Great little story about a famine in the land and the only way to survive is to go and receive, learn, and retain the name then speak it to the tree that once spoken will yield her strength and produce fruit for all. The key is not to get distracted and thus forgetting the name. The character are all animals and of course the tortoise has a reputation for wisdom. Each time there was a distraction the bell rung and he was reminded to not look back and be distracted. He was the hero and was much unappreciated, so much so that once he arrive to the tree, spoke the name, and the tree yielded her strength all the animals trampled the poor hero and crushed him. I did appreciate some parts of the story other parts I did not. I like the message. For me the take away would be summed up in an old saying, " The beginning of wisdom is to shrug your shoulders." That simply means that at every distraction say I don't care and I will ignore it because I have important matters on my mind.
Love the colorful illustrations I consider them different and brilliant. ( )

Although the illustrations throughout the story are very unique, I feel as if this is a traditional folktale story that has a climax and a lesson towards the end. The author and illustrator Janina Domanska tells the story beautifully through her artwork inspired by African art and folklore, and it’s different than most art you see in a folktale book. Every animal went to the Mighty God for the magic word to be able to eat from the tree, but they all failed at remembering not to look back. When the animals looked back they would forget the name of the tree, “Uwungelema”. Finally, Tortoise was able to say the magic word and all the fruit came from the tree, but unfortunately Tortoise’s friends were selfish and stomped on him until he died. In the end, Tortoise came back to life, uprooted the tree and crushed all of the other animals with it. This folklore is similar to the popular story "The Tortoise and the Hare". It's similar because both the tortoise in this story and the tortoise in "The Tortoise and the Hare" end up winning something grand in the end. Although I enjoyed the illustrations and found that it gave the book a unique touch, this isn’t a type of folktale I would want to read in my classroom because the tortoise dying may upset young readers, and give them a misleading lesson.

I love the spin on the Tortoise and the Hare. I also liked the story about how the tortoise got his colorful shell. ( )
