Moral Stories For Kids

  1. 1. 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 Aesop’s tales.

"Good God!" sighed the reeds, "our way is better. We bend but we don't break."

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 in her snug house. She had plenty of food to last the whole winter. The grasshopper had nothing to eat so, he went to the ant and begged her for a little corn. "No", replied the ant, "you laughed at me when I worked.

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 nuisance." 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."
