Kids love funny stories. Stories play a pivotal role in the overall growth and development of the child, particularly in the cognitive areas. Some of our best childhood days were when our mothers or grandmothers used to tell us really good stories with morals right before bedtime or during mealtime. Do the same for your kids. Create memories, make precious moments that your child will look back on, and remember with warmth.
I think there is no child who doesn’t hear stories with rapt attention, forgetting everything else. Every funny story leaves the audience looking for more. And what better than those fun-filled stories that make the youngsters burst into peals of laughter while giving them invaluable nuggets of wisdom.
That’s the power of storytelling. Here’s a list of 5 funny night-time stories that your kid will love and transform his/ her into a cheerful little devil.
The singing donkey
There once lived a young donkey. The whole day long he worked for his master, the washerman. Carrying heavy bundles of dirty and washed clothes to and from the river. At night, the washerman would set him loose, and he would wander freely across the fields. Every morning, as the sun rose over the trees, he would return to the washerman’s house. He was scared that if he came late, again his master will beat him, or worse, keep him tied up for whole night so he could not roam free under the stars.
One night, as he wandered across the fields, he ran into an old jackal The two animals began talking and very soon had struck up a firm friendship. They began to spend the nights together, wandering from field to field. The donkey, who was big and strong, would break through the hedges, and the jackal would follow. The two friends would stuff themselves on the tender young cucumbers that grew in the fields, and once they had eaten as much as they could, each would return to his own home. This became their nightly routine.
One starlit night, as the two stood in the middle of a cucumber field, the donkey said to the jackal, ‘look how clear and bright is the night. Seeing its beauty, I feel like singing,
Tell me now, which song shall I sing?
“Why do you wish to invite trouble? asked the jackal, alarmed. We have come here only to steal the farmer’s crops, and as you well know, thieves should not draw attention to themselves. Your voice is harsh and carries a long way across the fields. If you sing, the farmers will hear you, and then who knows what will happen? They may beat you, or even kill you. So it is best to be silent.
The donkey was greatly offended at the jackal’s words. “You are a wild animal, living in the forest. That is why you know nothing about the pleasure of fine singing on a moonlit night! retorted the donkey. But, you do not know how to sing” protested the jackal. “All you can do is bray, and your braying is sure to wake up the farmers and bring them running here. Why bring trouble
“You are a fool to think I cannot sing!” exclaimed the donkey. “I know all there is to know about music. Now listen as I explain it to you there are seven notes and three scales, twenty-one modulations and forty-nine measures, and three moods and tempos. There are nine emotions that music expresses, and ragas and raginis appropriate for each season, mood, and moment, Gods and men alike declare music to be the highest bliss. Now, do you see how much I know about music? How, then, can you stop me from singing?”
“All right”, said the jackal, ‘if you must sing, then I will hide by the hedge and keep a lookout for the farmers.’ The jackal ran off to hide in the shadows by the hedge.
The donkey raised his head and began to bray. His sound woke up the farmers, who picked up their sticks and came running. When they saw the donkey standing in the middle of their cucumber crop, they shouted and yelled and beat him with their sticks till the poor animal fell to the ground. Then, picking up a millstone, they tied it around his neck. Leaving the poor donkey lying on the ground. The farmers went home. The donkey lay there for a while, then recovering, stood up shakily, his neck and head weighed down by the millstone. He crashed unsteadily through the hedge and went unhappily home.
The jackal, who had been watching from the shelter of the hedge, shook his head and muttered, “You did not listen to the advice of wise, so now you have your reward, a millstone around your neck!”
Moral of the story: The advice of wise old people should be taken seriously.
The Miser Man
Once, a miser visited to buy a coconut. The coconut seller asked for fifteen rupees for one coconut. “I will pay you ten rupees,” said the miser. “Then attend the wholesale market, two kilometers away. Only there you’ll get a coconut for ten rupees,” replied the coconut seller. The miser walked to the wholesale market. He picked a coconut there and said to the coconut seller, “I can pay five rupees for this.”
“You want coconut for five rupees, then walk three kilometers to the seashore.” Replied the Wholesale market seller. The miser walked to the seashore. “I’ll pay two rupees for a coconut,” miser said to the coconut seller at the seashore. “I won’t sell it for two rupees. Why don’t you climb the coconut tree and get one for free?”
The miser climbed up the tree, but he slipped and fell on the ground and broke his backbone. He had to spend fifteen thousand rupees on treatment. All this just for a free
Moral of the story: Everything has a price.

Once an animal fair was held in the capital of a country. People from many areas brought their animals to the fair.
The King and Queen of the country also had to come to the fair. The Fair was very crowded and all the people were eagerly waiting for the royal family. One owner bought a beautiful mare to the fair. The mare gave birth to a cute foal in a stable at the fair. The foal was frightened to see such a crowd and ran away and hid between two oxen of a bullock cart. When the owner of the mare reached to take the foal back and forth, the bullock cart driver refused to give the foal. He said, “Beware! Whatever you put your hands to it. Now it is mine because it has come to me by itself. You had no right over it.”
“This foal is mine. Not long ago, the mare has given birth to it. It has fled from stables, afraid of the crowd of people. Give it to me.” The owner of the mare shouted. There was a fight between them on this matter. Then the royal family reached there. Both of them put their side before the king. The King decided to listen to both of them and decided that the foal would remain with the bullock cart driver as he himself considered the bulls to be his parents. ~~~~ There was also a wise fisherman standing there. . He did not find the king’s justice right. The next day, he took the owner of the mare with him and stood in the way outside the palace.
As soon as he saw the king coming out of the palace, he, along with the owner of the mare, started moving the fishnet in the mud of the way as if he was fishing.
Seeing this, the king was surprised and asked the fisherman, “What are you doing here on the way” ‘We are fishing, Your Majesty.’, The fisherman replied. ” But here there is neither water nor fish, even without water there are still fishes?”, the king said. “If the bull can be a parent of a foal, Your Majesty then in the soil, Why can’t there be fishes? ” The fisherman said. The king understood the fisherman’s intention. He realized his mistake. He immediately ordered the bullock cart driver to return the foal to the owner of the mare.
Moral of the story: Nothing is impossible for the intelligent.
