This disc has two fables, besides its songs and stories, with a steady background of classical music. They are Tracks 21 and 22. The first features a male narrator with a non-native English accent. The Goat And The Fox runs 2:04 and starts in medias res. When the goat appears, the fox seizes his opportunity. The fox lets the goat first drink and then ask the question about getting out. The fox laughs as he goes on his way. You should always look carefully before you do something. TH runs 5:03, uses a female narrator, and has mother tortoise announce the moral as a general lesson to her children early in the story. There's no place I really want to go, so I have no need to go hurrying, Tortoise says to Hare's taunting. Hare goes to sleep a second time upon seeing that tortoise has not made much progress during his nap. Slow and steady will get you to your goals.
