The Chicken And The Peacock
Moral of my fable: Be humble.
My Fable: Once upon a time there was a beautiful peacock and a drab chicken that lived in the kind and humble prince’s garden. The peacock teased the chicken saying, “I am bright and beautiful. You are ugly with no color but brown and white”. Alas the peacock was right he was bright and beautiful and the chicken drab and brown.
Then, one day a fox came creeping slowly into the prince’s garden he saw the peacock but not the chicken because it was drab he could not see it as well. He pounced and nearly got the peacock but just scratched it. He was about to try again when the prince came to check on a sick bird. He saw the fox and chased it away.
Never again did the peacock tease the chicken, for he realized that the things that make you you have reasons that can work to your advantage.
The Thanksgiving Turkey

Moral of my fable: Don’t be prideful or filled with yourself, because you won’t be aware of your surroundings.
My Fable: A sly, sneaky, and hungry fox was trying to get a Thanksgiving turkey for his family. His little pup, Jake, asked, “Daddy, are you sure we’ll have a turkey?” He replied, “Yes son, I’m sure.” So the fox left his den to search for a nice, fat, delicious turkey. The fox searched in meadows, fields, and forests, but still couldn’t find a turkey. It started to get dark, and the fox began to worry that Thanksgiving dinner would be ruined.
Just as he was considering giving up, he spotted one. There, down by the creek, stood a perfect scrumptious turkey. Slowly, sneakily, and stealthily, the fox crept up to the turkey. Thinking to himself he said, “Yes! I’ve finally found a turkey for my family.” The turkey didn’t see the fox, for he was bragging and boasting to three other turkeys about how wonderful and delightful his feathers looked. The fox was thinking about how good his turkey would smell. He crept closer and closer waiting for the perfect chance to pounce. Suddenly he jumped to grab the turkey by his jaws and killed the fat, lazy, turkey. The other three turkeys quickly fled and ran for their lives.
Filled with excitement, the fox trotted home with the turkey held by its jaws. When he arrived home, his family was ecstatic. Little Jake said, “I knew you could do it daddy”. And he gave his dad a great big hug.

Moral of my fable: Pride goes before destruction.
My Fable: There once was an eagle named Edmund, who was so proud no one liked him, especially Levi. Levi was a shy lizard who always hid under rocks, and rarely came out. When he did, it was only to find food.
One day, Edmund was flying around the mountain looking for someone to have a race with. Meanwhile, far below, Levi was looking for food. Edmund saw Levi and flew down and said, “Levi I challenge you to a race! Look at your tiny legs. I can fly! I have big wings. I would be able to fly to the finish line before you could get half way.”
“I will race you tomorrow,” said Levi.
The next day, it was very stormy. The wind was howling and the leaves were coming off the trees. Because of his pride, Edmund still wanted to race. Everyone else was sheltered in their homes watching the race on their TVs. The race started, “And they’re off!” the announcer said. Edmund was having trouble, because the wind was pushing him back. Then a really strong gust of wind blew Edmund back to the starting line. Levi won the race because he was low to the ground and the wind did not affect him.
At the end of the race, Levi scampered up to Edmund and said, “Good work! I hope you win next time.” Edmund was surprised that Levi said that.
“Thank you, I am sorry for being proud and mean,” Edmund replied.
“I forgive you, let’s be friends,” said Levi.
