The Zodiac Race
Sylvie the Sheep
Sylvie the Sheep shows that she’s CARING to others and BRAVE in facing her fears in her story of the Zodiac Race.
By nature Sylvie the Sheep is timid and she’s afraid of many things. When her friend Maxi the Monkey asks her to join the Zodiac Race, she agrees because he’ll accompany her. When he’s late, she decides to be brave and take on the challenge alone. Later Maxi catches up and apologizes, and with her caring nature she forgives him. They continue on and then rescue Rocky the Rooster, and together they cross the river to finish the race as a team.
