"Lessons" is a comic book that takes place in Book Two: Earth, originally released in the August 2007 issue of Nickelodeon Magazine[1] and later released by Dark Horse Comics in Avatar: The Last Airbender — The Lost Adventures.


Sokka, Momo, and Appa clamor noisily for a piece of fruit, to which Toph, who is attempting to train Aang in the importance of listening, becomes increasingly annoyed.


While residing in a forest, Toph sets out to teach Aang to listen to the sounds of the earth as part of his earthbending training. To that regard, she demands that everyone else stay out of their way, since they need peace and quiet.

Complying with Toph's order, Sokka leaves for a stroll through the forest, but he has trouble keeping himself busy as he is hungry. He encounters Momo, who is in the possession of a large piece of fruit. Guided by his stomach, he tries to take it from the winged lemur, but the animal flies away with it. A noisy chase ensues, with first only Sokka in pursuit of Momo and the other way around, but when Appa takes the fruit from the Water Tribe warrior, both Momo and Sokka are following the flying bison.

Fed up by the ruckus the three were causing, Toph loses her patience and ends it by earthbending a pillar right underneath Sokka's feet, elevating him into the air, where she leaves him for the remainder of the day, much to Sokka's chagrin.
