10 Lines Short Stories With Moral Lessons for Kids

Published February 4, 2021

When trying to impart an important moral lesson to kids, short stories are often the go-to for most parents. It not only tickles their imagination, but it also teaches them about life.

Short stories have a way of teaching lessons that makes them more relatable and interesting. Rather than just telling your kid not to lie, relating a short story about it helps them understand what happens when they lie. It helps them become more aware of their actions and their consequences. The moral lessons from these stories also help shape their character and moral compass as they grow old.

Here are 10 short stories with moral lessons that your kids (and even some adults) will learn a thing or two from:

1. The Hare and the Tortoise

There was once a hare who was friends with a tortoise. One day, he challenged the tortoise to a race. Seeing how slow the tortoise was going, the hare thought he’ll win this easily. So he took a nap while the tortoise kept on going. When the hare woke up, he saw that the tortoise was already at the finish line. Much to his chagrin, the tortoise won the race while he was busy sleeping.

Moral of the story:

There are actually a couple of moral lessons we can learn from this story. The hare teaches that overconfidence can sometimes ruin you. While the tortoise teaches us about the power of perseverance. Even if all the odds are stacked against you, never give up. Sometimes life is not about who’s the fastest or the strongest, it’s about who is the most consistent.

2. The Dog and the Bone

Once there was a dog who wandered the streets night and day in search of food. One day, he found a big juicy bone and he immediately grabbed it between his mouth and took it home. On his way home, he crossed a river and saw another dog who also had a bone in its mouth. He wanted that bone for himself too. But as he opened his mouth, the bone he was biting fell into the river and sank. That night, he went home hungry.

Moral of the story:

If we always envy what others have, we’ll end up losing what we already have, just like the greedy dog.

3. The Thirsty Crow

After flying a long distance, a thirsty crow was wandering the forest in search of water. Finally, he saw a pot half-filled with water. He tried to drink from it but his beak wasn’t long enough to reach the water inside. He then saw pebbles on the ground and one by one, he put them in the pot until the water rose to the brim. The crow then hastily drank from it and quenched his thirst.

Moral of the story:

If there’s a will, there’s a way. Every problem has a solution if we just look hard enough and don’t give up.

4. Lazy John

There was a boy named John who was so lazy, he couldn’t even bother to change his clothes. One day, he saw that the apple tree in their yard was full of fruits. He wanted to eat some apples but he was too lazy to climb the tree and take the fruits. So he lay down underneath the tree and waited for the fruits to fall off. John waited and waited until he was very hungry but the apples never fell.

Moral of the story:

Laziness can get you nowhere. If you want something, you need to work hard for it.

5. The Fox and The Grapes

Once there was a hungry fox who stumbled upon a vineyard. After seeing the round, juicy grapes hanging in a bunch, the fox drooled. But no matter how high he jumped, he couldn’t reach for it. So he told himself that it was probably sour and left. That night, he had to sleep on an empty stomach.

Moral of the Story:

Most of us have the tendency to act like the fox. When we want something but think it’s too hard to attain, we make up excuses. We tell ourselves that it’s probably not that great instead of working hard for it.

6. The Ant and The Grasshopper

The ant and the grasshopper were good friends. In the summer, the ant works hard to fill his storage with food. While the grasshopper was enjoying the fine weather and playing all day. When winter came, the ant was lying cozily in his home surrounded by the food he stored during the summer. While the grasshopper was in his home, hungry and freezing. He asked the ant for food and the ant gave him some. But it wasn’t enough to last the entire winter. When he tried to ask the ant again, the latter replied: “I’m sorry my friend but my food is just enough for my family to last until the end of winter. If I give you more, we too will starve. We had the entire summer to prepare for the winter but you chose to play instead.”

Moral of the story:

Winter, in this story, represents a time in our life where food and resources are scarce. While summer is that time where everything is abundant. So if you have a lot right now, save some of it for the winter.

7. The Boy Who Cried Wolf

There was once a shepherd boy who liked to play tricks. One day, while he was watching over the herd, the boy decided to play a trick and cried “wolf! wolf!”. The people who heard rushed over to help him. But they were disappointed when they saw that there was no wolf and the boy was laughing at them. The next day, he did it again and people rushed to his aid only to be disappointed once again. On the third day, the boy saw a wolf devouring one of his sheep and cried for help. But the people who heard him thought this is just another of the boy’s pranks so no one came to help him. That day, the boy lost some of his sheep to the wolf.

Moral of the story:

If you always lie and cheat on other people, there will come a time when no one will believe you anymore.

8. The Ugly Duckling

Most of us have probably heard of this story as this is one of the most popular fairy tales in the world. The story revolves around a duckling who from the moment of his birth has always felt different from his siblings. He was always picked on because he didn’t look like the rest of them. One day, he had enough and ran away from the pond he grew up in. He wandered near and far looking for a family who would accept him. Months passed and seasons changed but everywhere he went, nobody wanted him because he was such an ugly duck. Then one day, he came upon a family of swans. Upon looking at them, he realized that during the months he spent looking for a family to call his own, he had grown into a beautiful swan. Now he finally understood why he never looked like the rest of his siblings because he isn’t a duck but a swan.

Moral of the story:

We shouldn’t be too quick to judge others based on their physical appearance. Just because someone doesn’t fit societal definitions of beauty doesn’t mean they’re ugly. Each of us is beautiful in our own unique way and it’s time we accept and celebrate that individuality.

9. The Lion and the Poor Slave

There was once a slave who was treated cruelly by his master. One day, he couldn’t take it anymore and ran away to the forest to escape. There he chanced upon a lion who couldn’t walk because of the thorn in its paw. Although he’s scared, the slave mustered his courage and took out the thorn in the lion’s paw. When the lion was finally free of the thorn, he ran into the forest and didn’t harm the slave. Sometime later, the slave was caught by his master along with some animals in the forest. The master then ordered the slave to be thrown into the lion’s den. When the slave saw the lion, he recognized it as the same lion he helped in the forest. The slave was able to escape the den unharmed and he freed all the other animals.

Moral of the story:

The good you did will always have a way of coming back to you. So do good deeds and be kind to others and the world will be kind to you.

10. The Elephant and the Ants

There was once a proud elephant who always bullied smaller animals. He would go to the anthill near his home and spray water at the ants. The ants, with their size, could do nothing but cry. The elephant just laughed and threatened the ants that he would crush them to death. One day, the ants had enough and decided to teach the elephant a lesson. They went straight into the elephant’s trunk and started biting him. The elephant could only howl in pain. He realized his mistake and apologized to the ants and all the animals he bullied.

Moral of the story:

Be humble and treat everyone with kindness. If you think you’re stronger than others, then use your strength to protect them instead of harming them.

Mowgli A fairy tale with pictures » For children and parents

A long time ago, a tiger named Shere Khan lived in the jungle. Everyone was afraid of him - he was cruel and spared no one.

On the day this story began, the smell of prey brought him to the river bank. Making his way through the thickets, he saw a crying child. "A man-cub!" exclaimed Shere Khan. nine0004

But just as he was about to pounce on the child, three angry wolves blocked his way. "One more step, Shere Khan, and you will die," they said. "This is our territory. Get out!" With three wolves, the tiger could not cope and he retreated, vowing revenge. Meanwhile, the wolves were looking at the child. "Poor thing! He'll die alone in the jungle!" - said the mother wolf. Turning to the other wolves, she added: "I would gladly take him into my family."

Adopting a human cub is not easy - such decisions are not made overnight. Each wolf had to express his opinion at the Great Council of the Wolf Pack. At night, when the full moon was over the jungle, the whole Flock gathered on Council Rock. In addition to wolves, there were Bagheera the panther and Baloo the brown bear. He spoke first: "I agree that the human cub stays with us. It will not harm anyone." nine0004

"Be careful!" Bagheera said. "What if he cheats on us later? When he grows up, he can return to the people and bring them here to hunt us. " - "We need to make him love us," answered the mother wolf. "I will take it upon myself." "I'm in favor". So, the Great Council decided to accept a human cub into the Pack. The mother wolf gave him the name Mowgli.

Several years passed. The mother wolf could be proud of her adoptive. Mowgli grew up with the cubs - he became smart and strong and loved wolves like his brothers, but he was terribly curious and wandered through the jungle, unaware of the danger that lurks at every step. “If you stumble upon Shere Khan, you will not be in trouble.” “But I have you, Bagheera,” answered Mowgli. “What should I be afraid of?”

"Monkeys are not your friends," Baloo told him. As soon as he said this, a monkey appeared among the branches. She plucked a coconut and threw it straight at Baloo's head - bang! In a moment there was no trace of her, and Mowgli could not help laughing.

The next day the monkeys reappeared. Now there were a whole bunch of them. They came to Mowgli. "Come with us," they told him, "you'll like it here. Do you want to visit our palace?" Mowgli thought - doubts overcame him: "What if Baloo is right, and this is a trap?" But curiosity turned out to be stronger - after all, to visit the ruins of an ancient Indian city where monkeys lived was his old dream. And, forgetting the instructions of Baloo, he set off. nine0004

Noticing the disappearance of Mowgli, Baloo immediately guessed that the monkeys still managed to lure the boy into their lair. The bear rushed to look for Bagheera. "Together, - said the panther, - we can not cope with them. There are too many monkeys. I see only one way out - to ask for help from Kaa." Kaa was a huge snake - a boa constrictor. He was terribly voracious and climbed trees like monkeys, so they were mortally afraid of him. Kaa, without hesitation, agreed to help Bagheera and Baloo.

They found Mowgli in a deep snake pit at the entrance to an ancient Indian city. "The monkeys deceived me," Mowgli complained. "I'm hungry and bruised. They wanted to make me their slave and threw me here." Cobras writhed at his feet. "I'm already tired of fighting off this poisonous people," he added, throwing another cobra away. "I'll deal with them," said Bagheera. "But we must hurry before the monkeys gather their strength." nine0005

"That's my concern," said Kaa. And then a terrible fight began. Mowgli's friends turned out to be stronger. Only flight could save the monkeys. But they had only two options for this: either jump into the water, where Bagheera was waiting for them, baring their terrible fangs, or trying to slip past Kaa, who opened his terrible mouth. Few of the monkeys managed to escape the jaws of a huge boa constrictor.

So Mowgli was saved. The excitement has been left behind. "Well," said Bagheera, "I hope the lesson will do you good this time. Just think how much trouble you've given us three!" Ashamed, Mowgli lowered his eyes. But Kaa, who knew nothing about moralizing, objected: "Ah, in my opinion, everything was just right. We had a good time - I'm satisfied. And my stomach, even more so." - "Thank you, glorious Kaa," said Mowgli. "I will never forget this." nine0005

Bad news awaited Mowgli in the Wolf Pack. Old Shere Khan reappeared in these places. But even worse was that he managed to sow discord among the wolves. The old wolves were on the side of Mowgli, but the young ones believed that he should leave the jungle and return to the people. They did not know that Shere Khan wanted to tear Mowgli to pieces at the first opportunity.

But Bagheera knew that. And she suggested to Mowgli what to do: "Go to the people and do not return until you get the Red Flower!" In the language of animals, fire is called the Red Flower - only this formidable weapon could scare off Shere Khan. With the onset of night, Mowgli went to the village. There, unnoticed by anyone, he obtained a whole pot of burning coals and brought them into the jungle. nine0004

Mowgli summoned Shere Khan to the Great Pack Council. Raising the burning torch high, he called out to him: "Sher Khan, I'm not afraid of you! Get away and remember: next time I will come to the Grand Council with your skin!" The tiger took to flight. But this did not reconcile the wolves, on the contrary, it became another reason for contention between the old and the young. And then Mowgli decided to go to the people.

At first life in the village amused Mowgli. Never before had he heard so many ridiculous stories about the jungle and the animals that lived there. At first, he tried to dispel human delusions, talked about the secrets of the forest, about how wolves raised him. But no one believed him, and, in despair, he fell silent. More and more often he dreamed of returning to the jungle. Separation from friends and mother-wolf was hard for him. nine0005

People assigned him to herd a herd of buffaloes. Mowgli took advantage of this and drove the animals to the very edge of the pasture, where the jungle began. There he once met two young wolves. "You were right," they told him.

So Mowgli realized that he could return to the jungle, to the life he loved. "Call Shere Khan here," he suggested to the wolves. "Tell him that I'm alone, and that he can easily devour me. And I'll take care of our meeting." The wolves exactly fulfilled his request. In less than a day, a tiger appeared at the edge of the forest. Deciding that Mowgli was really defenseless, the tiger prepared to jump, but the boy launched a herd of buffaloes right at him. nine0005

Confused, Shere Khan ran away, and Mowgli, with loud cries, chased his buffaloes after him. The tiger was agile and fast, but obstacles interfered with it - large boulders, fallen trees ... But nothing interfered with the buffaloes - they rushed ahead. Shere Khan was doomed. The herd overtook him and trampled him. Shere Khan was dead and the kites were already flocking to him. There was nothing left of him, except for the skin and eyes bulging in deathly horror.

Mowgli returned to his Pack as a true hero. Bagheera, Baloo and the wolf brothers were proud of him, and this filled his heart with happiness. On the day of his great victory, he vowed never to leave the jungle again. nine0004
