Rabbit and Turtle Story for kids

A rabbit and turtle lived in a forest. The turtle used to move very slowly. He never used to do any work in a hurry but the rabbit does everything very fast and he was very proud of it. He also teased the turtle very much for his slow movement.

One day the turtle was going somewhere and suddenly the rabbit stopped him and said, “Hey you, can you never walk fast? Come on today, do a race with me and see Who wins? and who will win he will get a huge reward”. The turtle thinks for a while and then tells him, well start the race as you wish. The rabbit said the race will end after reaching that pole.

The race has started. The rabbit jumped at once and reached far ahead. And the poor turtle was slowly following him. All the animals of the forest started talking to each other.

[Animals saying to eachother] Hey, I don’t think the turtle will win. Yes, I also think that the rabbit will win just now. The turtle can never win. He is moving very slow and And all animals talk about this among themselves.

The rabbit went very far. When he looked back, he did not see the turtle. He went under the tree and sat down. He started thinking. Hey, he is not going to come yet, no-one knows how long he will take.
