Short Stories for Kids on Kindness and Unity

Kids Short Story 1: The sweetest and bitter most thing in the world!

It was Christmas time, somewhere in a corner of Scotland, Amy and Allen were excited to visit the church. Every year, their favorite teacher would narrate some moral stories and plays. All the kids loved it.

This year too, they went to school with a lot of anticipation for the storues. In the story session, the teacher asked all of them 2 questions. Which according to the kids was the sweetest thing in the world?  and the most bitter thing in the world? She said that the answer is the same for both questions! The kids were perplexed! They wondered how could the sweetest thing become the most bitter thing. They thought that it could be any fruit, when it is fresh, it will be sweet, when it is rotten it will become bitter. The teacher said that it was not an edible thing! They were even more confused now!

The teacher said, that the answer was tongue. She said that you can use your tongue to communicate nice things and the world around you will be beautiful; you can use your tongue to hurt people as well. So, one should wisely use their tongue

Moral of the short story:

“words kill; words give life; they are either poison or fruit, you choose”. We should all learn the art to pick the word before we speak.

Kids Short Story on Unity and Team work:

A huge spider lived with his family in a middle of a garden. There were other insects like grasshoppers, crickets, and ladybirds living around the same area. The spider was a little evil-minded. He used to not do any work but just went around and stole some food from the other insects and eat. These insects felt very sad, but none of them wanted to go and ask the sider as his house was very sticky. They would get stuck.  All the insects came together and thought of a plan to get rid of the spider.

The next day, when the spider was within earshot, the insects began to talk loudly.  They all discuss a tasty small fruit that grows at the back side of the garden. They were making plans to reach the tree. It was a little far away.

The spider was delighted to overhear this discussion. The spider thought, that he should get there before the animal  and steal all the fruits . So, he crawled as fast as he could and reached the place.

The insects had made some arrangements there. They had collected rubber from a rubber plant and made small rolls of rubber balls that looked like small berries. They had placed them carefully on the stem of small plants. In the end, they poured the remaining rubber and made a big sticky pool to trap the spider. The spider was excited to see the rubber balls and crawled toward it. It jumped into the puddle without its knowledge and got struck in the gum. Its whole body got stuck in the rubble puddle.

The insects felt very proud of themselves for completing their mission. From then, there was no one to disturb them.

Moral of the short story

Unity always wins. Even if the problem is big, we can pull it down if we work together as a team.
