The Zodiac Race
Rosie the Rabbit
In her Zodiac Race story, Rosie the Rabbit learns about PATIENCE and PERSEVERANCE, and that good things happen to those who wait.
Rosie the Rabbit wants to win the race, but there’s a problem. She needs to cross the river near the finish line, but she doesn’t know how to swim. She tries to learn swimming the day before, but it’s not something one can learn in just one day. As Rosie arrives at the river, she remains patient and looks for a solution, until she finds the perfect rocks to jump across the river. She earns fourth place in the Zodiac Race and realizes that her patience and perseverance has paid off.
