Yoskolo the Polar Bear
Yoskolo the polar bear admires his older brother so much, he wants to be just like him. When he sees his brother quickly and adeptly climb an iceberg, and receive praise for his skills, Yoskolo jumps into the water to try it himself. He is too young for the challenge, however, and quickly realizes that the iceberg is too far and the currents too fast. So he turns and swims back to his anxious family. His mother and brother, however, are impressed with his swimming. As he goes to bed that night in his ice cave, he begins to understand that he doesn't have to be like his brother or have his brothers same skills; he can simply be himself.
