Animals living in the forest 🌳 

A bee and a mule were best friends. One day they were walking through the forest when they met a hyena. “Hello, beautiful mule, what are you doing here with a bee as your bodyguard?”, asked the very hungry hyena. “We are going around the wood and then we will go back to our shelter”, answered the very  scared mule. So the hyena, without losing time, attacked the poor helpless mule, but suddenly his friend bee went to pinch the hyena at the bottom. So the beast started to complain about the food, because she had nothing to eat anymore.

This story teaches us that everyone, small or big creature, can  be brave and can reach their own goal in every situation.

Once upon a time there was a hamster, a horse and a family of foxes.

The hamster and the horse were very honest and kind animals. The foxes had some babies and their home  was in front of the hamster and the horse’s house.

The hamster and the horse went to work every day, but no one knew about their job. Every evening they came back home dirty and  the foxes family was afraid of them and never came out with their babies.

One day Dad fox visited the neighbours to ask them why they came back home  from work dirty. Dad fox told them: “My babies are afraid to go out. I really want to know something about your job”. The hamster replied:” First of all your babies should not be afraid because we are good animals: we help many helpless babies and then we work in the quarries”.

Dad fox gasped.

Moral of the story: “Never judge people without knowing the whole story of their life”.
