|Were They Equal? - an African story as told by Dr. Arnold Perey||
Performing Arts- Storytelling
"Were They Equal?" is a delightful story from Africa, about Tortoise, Elephant, Hippo, & You! Arnold Perey, anthropologist, in this illustrated children's book, has retold the story for children today, and illustrated it with lively pictures. He is joined by flutist Barbara Allen, and actor Anne Fielding in the telling of the story. You'll hear about Tortoise, who is small. The big animals, Elephant and Hippo, feel important because they think they are better than Tortoise. But Tortoise plays an amazing trick on them which helps them see the truth: "We are different, but our feelings inside are the same. I deserve the same respect that you do."
