The Lion and The Mouse – Aesop’s Fables Retold – Kids Story and Activities
This is an ancient story about friendship – of how the mouse repaid a favour done by the lion. The pictures are bright and attractive. This story will illustrate to children the importance of friendship and of helping others. Although the lion was mighty and much bigger than the tiny mouse, it still accepted the mouse’s offer of friendship and let it go without harming it. And in turn when the lion was in trouble, the little mouse was able to help. Kids will enjoy this small story.
There are also two interesting activities for kids – There is a memory activity which will test children’s powers of observation and memory. (Children have to look at a picture and then remember various details in the picture.) There is an ‘odd one out’ activity where children have to look at a set of pictures and identify the odd one out.
