Many hundred years ago there lived an honest old woodcutter and his wife. One fine morning the old man went off to the hills to gather some sticks while his wife went down to the river to wash the dirty clothes. When she came to the river, she saw a peach floating down the stream, so she picked it up and carried it home with her, planning to give it to her husband to eat. The old man soon came down from the hills, and the good wife set the peach before him. Just as she was inviting him to eat it, the fruit split in two, and a little crying baby was born into the world.

Once, before humans walked the earth, winter did not end. It was very dark, and it snowed all the time. The animals were frightened. The worst thing was that they had no heat. Some animals went to the upper world, where they thought the heat was. They came to a lake where two bear cubs were playing beside a tent. Some bags were hanging up inside the tent. The visitors pointed to the first bag and asked the cubs, "What is in this bag?" "That," they said, "is where our mother keeps the rain.""And what is in this one?" the animals asked."That is the wind." "And this one?""The fog."

Once upon a time the animals had forgotten how to be kind.  One day Rabbit sat down beside an acacia tree and said, "Thank you, Acacia, for your shade. Do you mind if I lean up against you to take a rest?" Acacia quivered with gratitude and said, "I am happy to offer you my trunk." Rabbit slept until evening. As he got up to leave, he bowed to Acacia and thanked her again. Acacia whispered, "Years have passed since anyone has been so polite to me. Come, let me show you a secret."

"Take something, a gift from my heart," Acacia said. Rabbit selected a tiny gold band and slipped it over an ear. Acacia opened her trunk and Rabbit hop ...
