Stories about Proverbs:
The Camel and the Giraffe
Once, the camel and the giraffe quarreled and quarreled. They brought offenses each other; or the giraffe has a neck too long or the camel has the hump too big. One day the savanna burned and the fire drove away them in the desert. They caught only to take something to eat and a little water. On the way, the camel kept food for the giraffe, said: "I have enough reserves in my hump!" When they arrived to an oasis came the turn of the giraffe to reward the gesture of the camel because it has a long neck, it torn leaves by palm trees and it gave them to the giraffe. By then the camel and the giraffe remain friends. "A friend in need is a friend indeed!"
A Barking Dog Does Not Bite!
One day, a boy was invited to walk with his father. The boy was happy. He liked to go with his father. He putted on cap and coat and saw: "Father, I am ready." The boy and his father went out into the street. Suddenly they saw a big black dog. The dog had begun to bark. The boy was afraid of the dog. He wanted to run home. His father said: "Don't be afraid, boy! Don't you know the proverb: 'A barking dog does not bite?' "O, yes," said the boy, "I know the proverb, but does the dog know the proverb too?"
The Cricket and the Ant
All summer the cricket has danced and sung. Many times he saw an ant carrying a grain of wheat on her back. The cricket invited her to sing and dance with him. The ant answered him that she must collect food for winter. Winter come. The cricket didn't find food while the ant had enough grains to leave a peaceful life. Precaution is mother of wisdom. You mustn't think only to the present, but you must think to the future too. You must make sledge in summer and wagon in winter!
The Cocks and the Eagle
Two cocks fought one day. The winner wanted to inform the whole village about his deed.
It climbed on the roof of the house, flapped its wings and shouted: "Look at me, I am the bravest cock!" It couldn't even finish its shout that the claws of an eagle grabbed it.
The praise for self doesn't smell well!
The Fox and the Grapes
In one summer day, the fox was walking through the vineyards. She was thirsty and was happy when she saw a grape up on the top of the vine prop. She jumps to catch it, but she didn't reach it. She said "It is clear, the grapes are to sour! And I don't like the grapes after all!" She finds an excuse not to go on. When the fox can't reach the grapes, she says that they are sour!
The Frog, the Mouse and the Hawk
