A little mouse came out to play.

The little mouse ran up the lion?s neck and slid down his back.

The lion caught him with a great big smack!

- I?m going to eat you!, the lion roared, his mouth open wide.

- No, no, please don?t!, the little mouse cried. Be kind to me and one day I?ll help you.

- I?m a lion! You?re a mouse! What can you do?

The lion laughed, very hard, and the mouse ran away. But the mouse was out walking the very next day. He heard a big roar, and squeaked when he saw the king of the jungle tied to a tree.

But the mouse had a plan to set him free. The mouse worked quickly and chewed through the rope. The lion said...

- Oh little mouse, I had no hope. You were right, little mouse, thank you, I?m free. You?re the best friend there ever could be!

Cuento en inglés para niños de Los tres cerditos

Los tres cerditos y el lobo feroz, cuento con valores para niños

Once upon a time, there were three little pigs that were going to build a house to be safe from a wolf, who was hanging around destroying houses and eating the pigs that were inside.

The three little pigs had different ideas and so each pig built a different house. 

The youngest and most impatient brother wanted to finish his house soon and so he decided to build a house of straw and then he went to play with the other little pigs.

The middle brother built a house of sticks as it wouldn?t take him much time either, and so when he had finished he could also go out to play.

The oldest brother, decided to build his house of bricks. Even if it was going to take him longer, it was going to be a very strong house and a safe place from the wolf.

One day the wolf appeared and the three little pigs ran to the youngest´s house made of straw. But the wolf huffed and puffed and blew the house down, so the three little pigs ran to the middle brother´s house. 

The furious wolf followed them to the house of sticks, and huffed and puffed and blew that house down too. So they ran to the oldest brother´s house. 

The three little pigs were really scared. When the wolf arrived he huffed and puffed but he couldn´t blow down the house of bricks. So he gave up and disappeared, and the three little pigs never saw him again.

Wolf! Wolf!

But no one paid attention to his cries. No one came to rescue his sheep. The shepherd boy returned home crying only with few of his sheep. From that day onwards, he promised never to lie again.

The dove and the ant. Cuento en inglés para niños

Fábulas cortas en inglés para niños

A dove saw an ant fall into a brook. The Ant struggled in vain to reach the bank, and in pity, the dove dropped a blade of straw close beside it. Clinging to the straw like a shipwrecked sailor to a broken spar, the Ant floated safely to shore.

Soon after, the ant saw a man getting ready to kill the dove with a stone. But just as he cast the stone, the ant stung him in the heel, so that the pain made him miss his aim, and the startled dove flew to safety in a distant wood.

Moral of the fable: a kindness is never wasted.
