The first one continued further and asked, “You can catch more fish; why are you leaving now?” The second one said, “These are enough for today’s meal. “One for me to eat; the other one is sitting here for an old man, and I will give one to him.”

Again, the first asked the second. “I did not catch one fish from morning till evening, but you came now and caught two fish; how is that possible?” The second one said, “When I come, give God two fish.” I asked you to give one to me and the other to the old man sitting there,” he replied.

The Fox and the Elephant Story

Good Short Stories for Kids with Moral:

There was an elephant in a forest. The elephant was strong and brave. Big in size but weak in intellect. All the animals made fun of the elephant. All the heavy work in the forest was easily done by the elephant. 

One day a woodcutter came to the forest and asked the elephant for help. The elephant was dragging heavy pieces of wood and placing them near the lorry. Thus the elephant was helping everyone in the forest. 

One day the elephant worked from morning till evening and became exhausted and very hungry. Went looking for food but could not find food anywhere. Dejected, the elephant came and sat under the mango tree. There is one mango in the mango tree. Seeing that, the elephant’s tongue watered. But the mango did not reach the elephant’s trunk.

The mango fruit fell down but the fox who was there immediately took the fruit and ran away. The fox took the only mango fruit there was. The elephant went elsewhere to look for food with a pale face. 

Moral of the story: It is not enough to have only physical strength, there must also be technique. What cannot be done by strength can be done by technique.
