This disc has two fables, besides its songs and stories, with a steady background of classical music. They are Tracks 20 and 21. Both are narrated by a male narrator with a non-native English accent. The Peacock And The Crane (2:43) elaborates the tale that has the peacock mocking the crane's drab color; the peacock has to concede that the crane can fly and sing and that the peacock's purpose is to look beautiful. Do not judge someone by the way he or she looks. It is what is inside that really matters. You are all special in your own way and give to life your own little gift. The Popular Hare (3:38) had been told by many animals that he is their best friend. A branch fell on the poor hare and injured one of his hind legs. He knew that the villagers would be out hunting with their dogs the next day. The narrator moderates his voice for various friends of the hare: horse, bull, goat, donkey, ox, bear. The hare returned exhausted to his family that night aware that, though he was popular, true friends will always be there to help when you need them most.
