The Milkmaid and her Pail – Short Story for Kids
Once, there was a milkmaid who loved daydreaming about everything. She took good care of her cows on the farm, and the cow would give her fresh and creamy milk every day.
She used to milk her cow every day and sell the milk in the market. The Milkmaid carried her milk in a pail on her head to the market. As she was walking, she started daydreaming about the money she would be getting for selling the milk.
She thought, “I will buy fifty hens from the market. Once the hens lay eggs, I will sell them for money.” “With that money, I will buy a nice dress and wear it to the fair. Men will want to talk to me, and women will be jealous of me.”
As she thought, she tipped on a stone and fell. The pail fell on the ground, and the milk spilt over her.
The Milkmaid cried all the way back to the farm.
Moral of the Story:
