The story of Share the Lion King and his jungle friends has been entertaining and teaching children for many centuries. It can provide them with a tool with which to overcome irrational fears, so often caused by behavior or events that they as yet may not understand.

Idries Shah’s collections of Eastern oral and written literature have established the Sufi teaching story as an educational instrument. The original version of this story was told by the 13th century Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi.

“… a lesson in humility and empathy. This story talks about how some things can be misinterpreted. It supports social and emotional development.” —Burney, a teacher for Higher Horizons Head Start, Falls Church, VA
