The Foolish Mouse

This is one of the most amazing animal stories with a moral for kids. Once upon a time, there was a mouse who wanted to see outside world as he had never seen anything apart from his house. “Today I shall go out and see the world outside!” So, he decided to explore the world outside. He set out from his house and kept walking on and on.

He saw many things which he had never seen before. After a while, he reached a farm which had many different animals. “Wow! There are so many different animals here.” Apart from the other animals, two animals got his attention.

One was the scary looking terrible animal which had colourful feathers and a big beak. “If he sees me, he will surely eat me up!” the mouse thought and quickly hid behind the bush. From there, he saw the other animal. He saw that it was beautiful and fluffy with soft hair. “This animal looks friendly! I should go and talk to him.” the mouse said to himself.

Just as he was about to move towards it, someone called both the animals from the farm and the animals went away. The mouse also returned. After reaching home, he told his tales of adventure to his friends and family about the two interesting animals he had seen. “Today I saw very interesting animals in the farm. One of them was really scary and the other one looked very friendly to me,” the mouse said.

“The animal you thought was scary was a rooster and would have never harmed you and on the other hand, the one you wanted to talk to was a cat and he would have eaten you up in a minute.” That day, the young mouse realised that he was lucky to be alive after what he was about to do.
