Aesop’s Fables

This fable comes from the children’s book titled “Aesop’s Fables – A Classic Collection of Children’s Fables” by Little Bendon Books.

This is a short story, so I will be quoting it word for word. Just to be clear, these are not my words.

The Crow and the Pitcher - Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.com

“In a spell of dry weather, when the Birds could find very little to drink, a thirsty Crow found a pitcher with a little water in it. But the pitcher was high and had a narrow neck. No matter how he tried, the Crow could not reach the water. He felt as if he would die of thirst.

Then an idea came from him. Picking up some small pebbles, he dropped them into the pitcher one by one. With each pebble, the water rose a little higher. The Crow kept dropping in pebbles until at last the water was near enough to the top so that he could drink.”

Lessons learned…
