The Lion and the Rat

This is my first blog. I am trying to collate all the short stories which we can narrate to the kids.

First story which is very popular for years and yet the favourite to all of them.

Lion and the Rat:

Once there lived a lion in a forest. It was fast asleep under a tree. There came a rat running around. It was all playing to itself. It climbed the lion thinking it was a rock and continued playing on it. Suddenly the lion felt a tickling sensation and turned around to find a rat running over it. The lion turned fierce and roared at the rat. The rat was frightened and ran away to save his life.


After few days, the lion was trapped in a net by a hunter. The rat happened to pass that way and found the lion in the net. Moved by scene, the rat cut the net in to pieces with its sharp teeth. The lion was freed from the net. The Lion thanked the rat for its help and moved on.

Moral: Should always help the needy.
