Short Story For Kids Tonight



Dear kids this short story of a foolish crow is the true description of those who love flattery. Flattery makes us foolish and vain. Such people can’t make decisions. They are be fooled by the clever.

Crow and fox


                     A crow stole a piece of fried meat from the kitchen of a rich man’s house. He flew away and sat in a tree. A hungry fox was also sitting near the tree. He saw the crow with a big piece of meat in his beak. He could not just sit quite. He wanted to eat that piece himself. So he thought of a plan to cheat him.
The fox said “Good morning, dear Mr. Crow.” The crow did not answer. The fox said, “how do you do, my dear friend?” Still the crow did not greet him. He kept silent saying to him, “how can I speak. If I open my beak, the meat will fall down.”
                  The fox did not lose heart. He kept on urging him to speak. He said to the crow, “Hello my dear. Why don’t you answer me? Why don’t you sing a sweet song? You are among the top ten singers of the world, If not the best. Everyone is so keen to hear your melodious songs”
                   When the crow heard this, he forgot about the meat in his beak.
                 He started singing, “Caw, caw, caw.” the piece of meat fell down on the ground. The fox took it up and ate it. Then he said to the crow, “Thank you for this treat. I’ll come again someday to hear another song from you when you have another piece of meat”.
Moral:
Flattery makes one foolish.

    1. Dear Rickey! before you, I have searched many sites having good books but in vain. Internet has all material in itself and I find internet as a book of my all interests. My opinion to you is that instead of finding sites of books, be a direct reader of internet. You will always find endless material of your interest on internet. I would like to say Thanks for the comment.
