1500 years ago...There was once a monkey and a rabbit that lived in the jungle of Southern Mexico. One day a banana fell off a banana tree. They both ran to get the banana and they both grabbed it at the same time. The banana fell to the ground and the monkey and the rabbit started fighting.
The monkey said, "That's mine, give me it."
The rabbit said, "No, it's mine give me it back."
Just then a parrot came along and she said, "Why are you guys fighting?"
The monkey said, "Her stole MY banana."
But the rabbit said, "No, he stole MY banana."
The parrot said, "That's no reason to be fighting."
Just then the parrot told the monkey and the rabbit to give her the banana."
The monkey said, "No, why should we trust YOU!"
The rabbit said, "no, why should we trust you?"
The parrot, who is very trustworthy and wise said, "OK, I was going to break it in half for you guys but I guess I won't because you guys do not want me to."
The monkey said, "OK, we will let you help us settle this fight. But you better not be kidding around."
The rabbit said, "Yeah, what he said..."
So, that parrot broke the banana in half and gave half to the monkey and half to the rabbit.
They both said, "Thank you."
Then a jaguar came along and stole the whole banana from the rabbit and the monkey.
Then the rabbit and the monkey started crying.
"Help us parrot, help us get our banana back!"
The parrot flew up in the sky and grabbed both banana halves from the jaguar's very sharp teeth. You see, this parrot was not only wise, but very, very brave.
Then he flew down and gave the bananas to the monkey and the rabbit.
The monkey and the rabbit learned that there is always a peaceful solution to a problem, fighting only escalates a problem.
They also learned to be careful around jaguars.
