All the animals cross the river to escape the fire, but not the proud cheetah. He braves the river to save another animal. A pourquoi tale perfect for a folktale unit.

After the Last Page...

Did you ever wonder why some animals have spots or long fur, why the giraffe's neck is so long, or why the sun can only be seen during the day? Through time, people have tried to explain different elements in nature by telling stories. A story that explains ''why'' is called a pourquoi tale. Read other pourquoi tales and then write one for something you are wondering about.

Here is a list to get started:

Why Mosquitos Buzz in Peoples Ears: A West-African Tale by Verna Aardema

Her Seven Brothers by Paul Goble

How Music Came to the World by Hal Ober

How the First Rainbow Was Made by Ruth Robbins

How Animals Got Their Colors: Animal Myths From Around the World by Michael Rosen and John Clementson
