The Fox and The Crow – Short Stories for Kids
Once upon a time in a forest, there lived a cunning fox and a foolish crow.
One day, the crow found a big piece of Cheese and sat on the branch of the tree. Fox saw a Crow sitting on the branch of the tree with a big piece of cheese in his mouth.
The fox said to himself, “The cheese looks delicious and I am very hungry, Let me take it from the Crow”. He went to the Crow and said ” Good morning. You have a lovely piece of cheese with you. Can I please have a bit too?”. But the Crow refused. The Fox begged to the Crow but the Crow wouldn’t listen. He just sat quietly and ate his piece of cheese. But the Fox didn’t give up.
The Fox returned to the tree and said to the Crow,” Are you the same handsome Crow that everyone in the forest has been talking about? You look beautiful. You also have lovely black feathers and a sharp beak. You have a beautiful voice too. Everyone in the forest is praising your voice. Can you sing a sweet song for me?”. The fox saw the crow swelling with pride. The Crow was thrilled to hear that everyone in the forest was talking about him and praising him. He suddenly forgot all about the cheese and began to sing.
As the crow began to sing, the piece of cheese fell down from the tree and the fox caught it.
