The Pig Seed

How do we know what we know? That is the question I wanted to explore in this story. In it we follow a tortoise named Lionel, who is challenged by another tortoise to consider how well he understands the world around him, and how he's gained the knowledge he claims to have. I hope this one sparks your own thinking on this topic. ENJOY!

If you love this story, please share it with all sweatshirt-wearing tortoises, all book club members who actually read the books, all pigs who claim to have sprouted from plants, and all of your friends! They might just need a good story these days. Big People: if you happen to have an Apple device, leave a review in Apple Podcasts!

If your tiny person wants to share a story they've written, please send photos or recordings of it to rhea@littlestoriestinypeople.com. I'd LOVE to see their artwork, stories, and anything else they'd like to share.

BIG THANKS to the listeners who provided sound effects used in the story: WYLEE, DELLA, SCOUT, and WHITNEY!
