I think I like Babbitt's more just because they seemed like an easier read. However I loved comparing and contrasting the two. I would love to know why the differences between the two were there. I ended up basing my story from the Talkative Tortoise that was in both versions.
I don't have a lot of recap notes because I feel like i've written out all the stories before. But I really appreciate having multiple sources to read. The stories also remind me of Aesop's fables since there is usually some sort of take away lesson.
The image I chose seemed fitting because it looks like the Tortoise is talking.
