Moral story - The Greedy Dog

Hi children, here is an interesting moral story for you. This is an age old story about a dog which lost its bone i.e its food because it wanted to have more and more. So, let's read the story and learn the moral.

One day, a dog was walking with a bone in its mouth. On its way, he had to cross a brook.
Children, do you know what is a brook?

A brook is just a small stream of water. The dog started walking on the wooden bridge which was laid across the brook. While crossing the brook, the dog looked into the stream of water.

"Hey!, there's a dog in the river with a bone in its mouth" thought the dog which was crossing the wooden bridge. The dog on the bridge did not know that he was seeing his own image in the river water. The dog had a bone in his mouth but he wanted the other bone too from the dog he saw in the river water.

"Bow-wow", "bow-wow" barked the dog for getting the bone from the dog in the river.

So, children just imagine what would have happened when the dog opened his mouth and barked.

Alas! the bone from the dog's mouth fell into the river water. Now the dog has no bone with him and he lost his food. The dog became very sad and understood his mistake. He felt sorry for what it did and learnt never to be greedy again.

Children, what did you learn from this moral story?

Moral: 
Be happy with whatever you have. Never become greedy to get more and more. Otherwise you will lose whatever little you have and then you have to repent for your mistake.
