The process of reading children's stories on a regular basis to young children contributes to building the young child's personality and enriching him with many skills and morals.

It helps him to listen well and think more, and it also helps him to understand others around him. It helps him to be patient and trains him to reach the goal of the story and the purpose of what others tell him, as education is nothing but training and perseverance over the long term to see its results later.


The first story:

Once upon a time there was a young boy who was quick to anger and quick to respond with foul words. Every day it was very difficult for him not to lose his temper and control his unbridled anger. When he got angry, he quickly said whatever came to his mind, no matter how harmful it was to whoever was in front of him. Even those closest to him were not spared from this.

His father was very sad about this, and one day his father gave him a bag full of relatively large nails and a hammer, and his father, as he was heading towards the back fence of their garden, told him to hammer a nail into the fence whenever he felt very angry.

His father noticed that the son began to hammer nails so much in the first few days that the father thought that his son had used up all the nails he had given him. Over the following days, the number of nails that the son put on the fence decreased, and this was conclusive evidence of the son’s ability and success in controlling and controlling his unbridled anger little by little. Day after day, the son began to hammer nails less and less. When the first day came in which the son did not hammer a single nail, he gave the good news to his father, who was very pleased with that.

He grabbed his son's hand and went to the wall, wanting to move on to the next thing and the most important lesson about controlling and mastering anger. He wanted his son to pull out a nail from the wall every day he didn't get angry. The son did what his father asked him to do. When he finished with the last nail, his father said to him in a tone filled with sadness: “My son, do you see where each nail is?!” The words we say when we are angry are usually hurtful to those around us, and they create scars inside their souls that are like these holes in the wall, which cannot be removed no matter how hard we try.

The son understood the lesson his father taught him in an innovative and practical way that bore unparalleled fruit.

The second story:

On one of the farms, the farmer, the owner of the farm, set a trap for the mouse that was spoiling his good life. The mouse was terrified when he saw the trap, so the rest of the animals on the farm panicked, one animal after another, denouncing what the farmer had done and asking for help and assistance from his animal friends.

He went to the hen at first and told her about the matter and asked her to help him, but the hen refused and told him that she had nothing to do with the matter and as long as the matter was far from her and would not affect her, she would not interfere. He left her heartbroken and decided to go to the cow, perhaps he would find help from her, because in the end she was a large cow and with one movement of her foot she would finally free him from the cursed trap, but what he found in the cow’s response to his question made him decide not to ask for help from anyone, and to ask his Creator, glory be to Him, to protect him, and in the beginning and the end the whole matter is in the hands of God alone, with no partner.

Indeed, God Almighty answered the little mouse’s prayer, and a huge snake fell into the trap. The snake settled in the trap and did not make a sound until the farmer’s wife passed by, and then it overtook her and bit her with a very bitter bite.

The farmer comes, kills the harmful snake, carries his wife in his arms and rushes with her to the hospital. During her treatment, he slaughters a chicken to feed her. God wills that his wife should die because of the severity of the poison that the snake injected into her body, which has become thin. The farmer slaughters the cow to serve as food to the many guests who came to offer condolences for his wife and console him for her departure from him.

The third story:

One day, a very famous architect reached the point of retirement from his work. He was very happy that his time for rest was approaching and he would not be working again. He was planning to spend some quality time with his family and make up for all the lost time due to his preoccupation with his work.

This engineer was dedicated to the work he was doing, and it was time for retirement. He was in his manager's office wanting to get his approval for his retirement, but his manager surprised him by saying that he wanted him to build the last house and then retire as he wished.

The engineer felt upset and bored, as his manager's decision had ruined his plans. He began to implement the project he was assigned to do, but he put his conscience aside. His only concern was to finish the work no matter what it cost him, and as a result, the house was not as efficient as everyone was used to from the engineer.

In record time, the engineer was able to hand over the keys to the house to his manager, and he showed how impatient he was to get his approval for his retirement. The shocking thing for him was that his manager informed him that the house was his special gift, which he truly deserved for the tremendous effort and dedication he had put into his work over the past years.

I wish he hadn't done that. The engineer felt sad. All his life he had devoted himself to his work for the sake of others. If he had known that this house was his home, he would have devoted himself more and worked hard to build it. He blamed himself for what he had done.

The closest lesson to this story is about prayer. Many of us do not perform it well, even though it is our final act, and it is the first thing we will be held accountable for. If it is good, then the rest of our deeds will be good, and if it is corrupt, then the rest of our deeds will be corrupt as well. But we do not pray it at its appointed times, even though we know for certain that prayer was prescribed for the believers at specified times. If only we would take heed, lest regret and sorrow befall us.
