It isn’t always easy getting along with others, right? Sometimes you just don’t want to share, or wait your turn.

In this favorite episode from the Circle Round archives, we meet a brother and sister who know exactly how you feel. And they think they can find the answer… through magic!

Our story is called “The Lion’s Whisker.” For many years, versions of this folktale have been shared in Ethiopia: a country in East Africa.

This episode includes the voices of Miles Brown and Marsai Martin, whom you might know from the ABC show, “Black-ish.” And if you’re a public radio fan, you may recognize NPR’s own Ofeibea Quist-Arcton.

This episode was adapted for Circle Round by Rebecca Sheir. Original music and sound design are by Eric Shimelonis. Our artist is Sabina Hahn. You can find our picture book version of this episode here!
