The boy who cried wolf story pdf free download

There once was a boy who kept sheep not far from the village. He would often become bored and to amuse himself he would call out,



«Wolf! Wolf,» although there was no wolf about.  



The villagers would stop what they were doing and run to save the sheep from the wolf’s jaw. Once they arrived at the pasture, the boy just laughed. The naughty boy played this joke over and over until the villagers tired of him. 



One day while the boy was watching the sheep, a wolf did come into the fold. The boy cried and cried, 



«Wolf! Wolf!» 



No one came. The wolf had a feast of sheep that day. No one will believe a habitual liar even when he is telling the truth.

The boy who cried wolf story pdf

A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were flying on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. I’m tired. Therefore, I’m going to bed.

In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute and yelled to the passengers that they better jump, and he himself bailed out.  Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining. I am not fond of fruit. However, I do like bananas.  The doctor grabbed one of the parachutes and said “I’m a doctor, I save lives, so I must live to save other’s lives,” and jumped out. In the evening, I like to relax. For instance, I enjoy watching TV.

The lawyer then said, “I’m a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live.” He also grabbed a parachute and jumped. Today, I’m going to write a post. In addition, I’m recording some video lessons.

The priest looked at the little boy and said, “My son, I’ve lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace.” There are many reasons to exercise regularly. Above all, it keeps you healthy.

The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, “Do not worry Father. The smartest man in the world just took off with my back pack.” He’s a very nice guy. He took us out to dinner yesterday, for instance.

The Boys And The Frogs

Some Boys were playing one day at the edge of a pond in which lived a family of Frogs. The Boys amused themselves by throwing stones into the pond so as to make them skip on top of the water.

The stones were flying thick and fast and the Boys were enjoying themselves very much; but the poor Frogs in the pond were trembling with fear.

At last one of the Frogs, the oldest and bravest, put his head out of the water, and said, «Oh, please, dear children, stop your cruel play! Though it may be fun for you, it means death to us!»

«Always stop to think whether your fun may not be the cause of another’s unhappiness»

Belling The Cat

The Mice once called a meeting to decide on a plan to free themselves of their enemy, the Cat. At least they wished to find some way of knowing when she was coming, so they might have time to run away. Indeed, something had to be done, for they lived in such constant fear of her claws that they hardly dared stir from their dens by night or day.

Many plans were discussed, but none of them was thought good enough. At last a very young Mouse got up and said:

«I have a plan that seems very simple, but I know it will be successful. All we have to do is to hang a bell about the Cat’s neck. When we hear the bell ringing we will know immediately that our enemy is coming.»

All the Mice were much surprised that they had not thought of such a plan before. But in the midst of the rejoicing over their good fortune, an old Mouse arose and said:

«I will say that the plan of the young Mouse is very good. But let me ask one question: Who will bell the Cat?»

«It is one thing to say that something should be done, but quite a different matter to do it»

The Bull And The Goat

A Bull once escaped from a Lion by entering a cave which the Goatherds used to house their flocks in stormy weather and at night.

It happened that one of the Goats had been left behind, and the Bull had no sooner got inside than this Goat lowered his head and made a rush at him, butting him with his horns. As the Lion was still prowling outside the entrance to the cave, the Bull had to submit to the insult.

«Do not think,» he said, «that I submit to your cowardly treatment because I am afraid of you. When that Lion leaves, I’ll teach you a lesson you won’t forget.»
