The Animal School Fable

s a quick rundown of "The Animal School Fable" taken from I Am My Kids

It recounts the animals joining to create a school wherein all the animals would be equally trained to meet the needs of the society. To make a long story short, all the animals were required to learn the same things. This resulted in the birds nearly drowning, the runners missing running practice to stay for climbing remediation, the swimmers having to give up swimming to have extra tutoring time in flying, etc. A beaver who could really swim and managed to run, climb, and glide from tree to tree in a flight-type style achieved the highest average, thus managing to graduate as valedictorian. The other animals were smarting from all their failures and had missed the joy of excelling in their strengths. They had missed the training in the way they were created.
