The Rabbit's Race
Traditional Territory: Métis
Format: Hardcover
  • It is Grandparents Day at Joey's school. Joey's grandfather has been asked to be the guest speaker.

    As grandpa enters the school gym stage he sits down on the chair provided to him and starts...

    "When I was a boy, my grandfather always had a story for every occasion," he said. "He told me that while some stories are meant to be enjoyed, others have a lesson to help you grow. So, I'm going to do what my grandfather did with me when I was growing up. I'm going to tell a story."

    Grandpa retells a story of a great rabbit race not only was it a race of speed, but it was also a race between two different races of rabbits, the bush rabbits and the jackrabbits. Much like the famous story about The Rabbit and Turtle, this story also has a surprising twist and valuable lessons.
