Age Range: 8 – 12 years
Zinabu and six other dancers put up a splendid performance at the durbar grounds. Their dancing is so impressive that they are asked to perform again the next day. Amina is keen on being the lead dancer this time round, and so accuses Zinabu of missing her steps during the previous performance. She succeeds in convincing Madam Aisha, the drama and dance teacher that she can put up a better performance.

Indeed, those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
