 Slowly, slowly, you catch a monkey ...

Bongani wants to go to school but he is too young. To prove to his family that he is big and strong just like his cousins, he tries to catch a monkey.

Slowly, slowly, he must go.

Luckily his family is there to school him in the lessons of patience and compassion.

Adapted as a South African story, this variation of ‘Softly, softly, catchee monkey’ was originally an Ashanti (Ghana) proverb quoted by Lord Robert Baden-Powell, Founder of the Boy Scouts.
