One day she sees a big green frog. The frog can jump but it can’t run or play games. “I don’t want to have such a friend”, says Chita. And she goes and goes and goes.

Then Chita sees a dolphin, a big grey dolphin. The dolphin can jump and play. But it can’t run or sing. “I don’t want to have such a friend”, says Chita. So she goes and goes and goes.

Then Chita sees a little black and white kitten. The kitten is funny. It can run, jump and dance. It has got a ball and likes to play with it. So the monkey likes the kitten very much. “I want to be your friend”, says Chita. “Let’s play”

A Cat And Her Strong Friends

Once there lived a cat. She thought, «The lion is the strongest of all the animals. It is good to have strong friends. I shall go to the lion and make friends with him.»
She did so and the lion and the cat were friends for many, many days.
Once they went for a walk together and met an elephant. The lion began to fight with the elephant and the elephant killed him.
The cat was very sorry. «What shall I do?» she thought.
«The elephant was stronger than the lion. I shall go to the elephant and make friends with him.»
She did so and they were friends for many, many days.

Once they went for a walk and met a hunter. The hunter shot at the elephant and killed him. The cat was sorry, but she thought, «The man is stronger than the elephant, I see.»
So she went up to the hunter and asked, «May I go with you?»
«All right, let us go home together,» he said.
They came to the man’s home. His wife met him and took his gun from him. The cat saw that and thought: «Oh, the woman is the strongest of all! She can take the hunter’s gun from him, and he does not fight with her. He does not even say a word!» The man sat down at the table and the woman went to the kitchen. The cat went to the kitchen too. She decided to stay with the woman forever.

That’s why you always see a cat in the kitchen at a woman’s feet.

Why the Hare has no Tail

Long long ago the animals had no tails or very small ones. One day the Lion asked all the animals to come to him to get good tails. It was cold that day and it was raining. Tha hare had only a short little tail but he did not like to go out and said to the other animals, “Please, bring me a tail. I can’t go anywhere when it rains.”

“What tail do you want to have?” the animals asked him.

“Oh, any tail will be good for me. But it must not be too long or too short.”

Some time later the animals came back and each animal had a beautiful tail. But nobody brought a tail for the hare.

I think that some of them forgot about the hare, some had no time, some could not find a good tail for the hare.

But I know this: if you must do something, don’t ask others to do it for you. Don’t forget about the hare with his short little tail!

Which Is Better?

There was once a man who had three sons, and all of them loved the same girl. Each of them asked the girl the same question, “Will you marry me?” All of them were clever, handsome and strong. The girl liked each of the three young men very much and couldn’t decide which of them was the best.

One day the father of the three brothers said, “Here is some money for you. You will go on a long travel. While you are travelling, you must look for a very, very useful thing. When you find it, you will buy it and bring it home”.

The three brothers travelled for a long time, and they bought three very useful things.

The first young man bought a magic carpet. On it he could fly to any place in no time. The second brother bought a magic looking-glass. When he looked into it, he could see anyone and everything that he wanted to see. The third bought a magic lemon. The juice of that lemon could make a dying man or a woman well again.

The three brothers came together and showed their things to one another. Then one of them said, “We are far from our home and far from our dear girl. Let us look into the looking-glass and see her.”

The second brother took out his looking-glass, and they all looked into it. They saw that the girl was very ill. Then the first brother asked the other brothers to sit down on his carpet and all of them were at the girl’s house in no time. The third brother cut his lemon and gave the juice to the girl. The girl drank it and she was well again.

The young men were very happy.

“Now which of us will you marry?” they asked the girl.

“I thank you all, my dear friends,” answered the girl.  “One of the brothers saw me in his looking-glass, and that helped to save my life. His looking-glass is a very useful thing, and he will have it forever. Another brother brought all three of you on his carpet, and that helped to save me, too. It is also a very useful thing, and he will have it forever. And one of you gave me the lemon juice, and now I am well again. But he has no lemon now. He gave all he had to save me. I will be his wife.”

And the other two brothers said, “Yes, the girl is right”.

The Baby Elephant

This is a story about a baby elephant. The baby elephant is not happy. He says, “I do not like to work at the circus. I do not want to work at the circus. I do not want to do tricks for children. I want to run away”.  So he runs away. He comes to a forest and sees a brown bear. He says to the brown bear, “I want to live with you in the forest”.

 “All right,” says the brown bear. “But you must get ready for the winter. You must find a hole in which you can sleep in winter.”

The baby elephant does not like to work. He does not want to look for a hole. So he goes away. He walks and walks. Then he sees a squirrel and says to him, “I want to live with you”.

“All right”, says the squirrel. “ But you must get ready for  the winter. You must get nuts for the winter”.

But the baby elephant says, “I do not want to get ready for the winter. I do not want to get nuts for the winter. I do not want to look for a hole. I do not want to live in the wood. I want to go home. And the baby elephant goes back to the circus.

The Children In The Forest

 

Two children, a brother and a sister are going to school. There is a forest on their way to school. It is very hot on the road; it is very pleasant in the forest. Suddenly the boy says to his sister: «We have much time, let us go to the forest and play there».

The girl wants to go into the wood too. So they put their books on the grass and go into the forest. They see a squirrel. The boy says:

«Little squirrel, come and play with us”.

«I have no time”, says the squirrel. “I must get nuts. I must get ready for the winter. I cannot play with you.”

Then the children see a bee. The boy says:

“Little bee, come and play with us”.

“I have no time”, says the bee. “I must make honey. I cannot play with you.”

“Can you play with us?” they ask the ant.

“No,” says the ant. “I have no time. I must make a house”. It has a long piece of grass in its mouth.

The dove says: “ I cannot play with you. I have no time. I am making a nest for my babies.”

Nobody wants to play with the children.

So they go to the river. They say to the river,”You don’t work. You come and play with us”.

But the river says: “Do you think that I do not work? I work all day. I give water to the fields. I give water to the flowers. I give water to the squirrel, to the bee, to the ant, to the dove and to girls and boys like you. Go away. You go to school.”

The children are ashamed. They go to school. They are late, but they begin working hard at their lessons.

On the way home after school, they go into the forest again.

The squirrel says to the children:

“Work is over. School is over. Let us play now.”

The bee says,”Work is over. School is over. Come and play with me now.”

Mother love

Mother love

I was walking under the trees in my garden. There was a strong wind. My dog was running in front of me. Suddenly he stopped and then went again very slowly. I walked on and watched the dog.

Then I saw a little bird on the ground in front of the dog. It was a baby bird. Its nest was up in a tree; but the poor little bird couldn’t get back into the nest; it couldn’t fly. My dog was  near the baby bird. He wanted to catch it. But suddenly the mother bird flew out of a tree and fell like a stone in front of the dog. She flew at him and cried. She was ready to fight for her baby. She was ready to fight a big dog. How strong she was! How brave she was!

My dog stopped. He knew that the mother bird was very strong. He knew that she was  ready to fight him.

“Come!” I said to the dog. And we went away.

I thought about that little mother bird. How strong was love!
