Stories with Morals

Story Lessons

Character building, teaching morals, teaching respect and manners are essential subjects in the curriculum of life.

When the timing is right, the ability to learn a particular task might well be enhanced. This is referred to as a “teachable moment.” Story lessons can be utilized to encourage those teachable moments in an arena that children enjoy: reading on their own or being read to.

Such teachable moments afford the perfect opportunities by which to instill a special moral truth. At school or at home such stories are perfect for those lesson times.

Your children will enjoy reading these stories over and over again, providing you with valuable opportunities to discuss their moral value. And, through the value of repetition, as you use these story lessons, they become so familiar that their mere mention serves as a gentle reminder of any tiny error in judgment.

Story teaching is an ideal way of conveying truths and teaching character and values to children, and these stories with morals will enable your children to see and contrast the good with the bad, and learn to choose the good. They’ll be delighted to learn and put into practice the lessons learned in their stories.

What's more fun than reading Fables and Fairy Tales?

Acting in them, of course! Plays create a great hands-on lesson opportunity. Our plays are all adaptations of all-time favorites such as Grimms, Aesops, Hans Anderson, old legends and stories past through the ages.

All have been transformed into action plays. And as we've seen with all fables, there’s usually a moral lesson to learn.

Still true! Each play portrays that moral lesson, as usual. What better way to drive home that valuable life lesson? While performing each play, your children experience first hand, these lessons.

It’s always a good day for a Fable Play
