Moral Stories for Kids
Moral science stories are those that
are read at childhood, when the soul is
pure and clear, and remembered for the
rest of our lives. They are also passed on
to generations. It is difficult to find out
origin of different moral stories, as they
are found in different countries. But most
of the stories are said to originate from
Aesop, hence they are also known as
The Oak Tree & The Reeds
The Oak tree always thought that he was
far stronger then the reeds. He said to
himself "I stand upright in a storm. I don't
bend my head in fear every time the wind
blows. But these reeds are really so weak."
That very night blew a storm and the mighty
oak tree was uprooted.
"Good God!" sighed the reeds, "our way is
better. We bend but we don't break."
An Ant & A Grasshopper
A lazy grasshopper laughed at a little ant as she
was always busy gathering food.
"why are you working so hard?" he asked, "come into
the sunshine and listen to my merry notes."
"But the ant went on her work. She said" I am lying in
a store for the winter. Sunny days won't last for ever."
"Winter is so far away yet, "laughed the grasshopper
back. And when the winter came, the ant settled down

"No", replied the ant, "you laughed at me when I
worked. You yourself sang through the summer. So
you had better dance the winter away."
The Fox Without Tail
A fox was once caught in a trap. It was only after a tough
struggle that she could get free. But, to her sorrow, her beautiful
tail had been cut off and left in the trap.
"How ugly I shall look!" moaned the fox, " won't the other foxes
laugh at me ?"
Thinking hard, the fox hit upon a plan to save herself from being
laughed at. She called a meeting of his friends and said,
"Brothers! have you ever wondered why after all, we carry
these long tails?" Let us cut them off and be free from their
But the other foxes had noticed her cut-off tail. They laughed
aloud and replied, "You used to say that tails looked very fine
when your own was all right. Now that you have lost yours, you
want us to lose ours too."
The Wolf And The Goat
Once a wolf saw a goat atop a hill and
said, "Come down here, Miss Goat! The
grass here is greener and longer.“
"Thank You," answered the goat, "the
grass down there may be much better. But, if
I come down you will get a good meal. So, I
prefer to stay here - where you can't reach.
At least I am quite safe."
MORAL : Let not others
exploit your gentleness.
There was once a miser. He melted all his
money into a block of gold and buried it in a pit.
Every day he would dig it up and smile to see it.
One night the gold-block was stolen. So, the
miser was in tears. A friend of his saw him
