Top 10 Stories You Must Tell Your Children

Telling stories is a great way to inculcate values, morals and good virtues in children. Find about the top 10 stories which you must tell your children to cultivated good values in them.

Children love to hear stories especially from their parents and their grandparents. It is very easy to entertain them through these stories of different types and at the same time these stories teach them important values of life. Stories of Pachantantra, Jataka Tales, Aesop’s Fables and Fairy tales are all time favourite stories for the children. Given here are the Top 10 stories that we must tell our children.

1. Why Is the Camel’s Neck Crooked?

This story of Akbar and Birbal not only shows the intelligence of Birbal but also teaches how meticulously  we can remind one about a promise that one has made but forgot to keep. One day when Akbar and Birbal were walking along the banks of River Yamuna, Akbar saw a camel and asked why its neck is crooked. Birbal took no time to answer that the camel got punishment for not keeping its promise which reminded Akbar that he also forgot to keep his promise made to Birbal.

2. Unity Is Strength

No other story could have taught the importance of unity than that of the story of Doves and mouse in Panchatantra. When a flock of doves along with their king got caught in a net then flew together to a mouse that helped them by cutting the net and freeing them.

3. The Lion And The Rabbit

The story of lion and rabbit from Panchatantra teaches our kids that no one is small. A small rabbit had punished the lion with its intelligence. The lion mistook its own reflection in the water to be another lion and plunged into the well and got killed.

4. The Musical Donkey

The story of musical donkey and the jackal teaches our kids how they can land up into trouble if they do not listen to good advices. The donkey landed into trouble when it started singing while it was eating cucumbers from a garden.

5. The Golden Goose

This Jataka Tale teaches lots of good things like friendship, loyalty and kindness. It also teaches about the duties of a great and noble king.

6. The Noble Stag

This story of noble stag from the Jataka Tales depicts how a noble stag could change King Brahmadutta into a generous and just king. The king had even passed the test that was taken by the King of Heaven Sakka.

7. Killing of Kansha by Krishna

Children like to listen to mythological stories. The returning back of Lord Krishna to Mathura and then killing his maternal uncle Kansha is all time favourite for the children. This story teaches how good always wins over the evil.

8. The Crows and the Black Snake

This story from Panchatantra is about a mother crow, a father crow and a black snake. With the suggestion of a wise fox, the crows were able to teach a lesson to the black snake that started living in the same tree the crows were living. The snake tried to harm the baby crows so parents wanted to teach him a memorable lesson.

9. The Wolf and The Crane

His story teaches us not to expect any reward when we are serving a wicked person. A crane helped a wicked wolf by taking out the bone that got stuck in the neck of the wolf but the wolf refused to pay him the reward that he promised.

10. Prince Rama Finds a Wife

This mythological story of Prince Rama’s marriage to Princess Sita is a favourite one for the kids.
