2 minute short stories by Priyabharathi


This book has stories with morals. Children need to be taught morals without making sure that you are doing so.

Having perception is important. During touch time we make decisions in haste .Such decisions are not always correct. This is so true.

There is a story about dedication. This important in life. You achieve successes only when dedication is there. This would go a long way in explaining to children how to achieve success.

Children need to learn not to quit.No matter what situation you are in you can succeed only by trying . This is my favourite story.

Time is the essence of life. Many time we take decisions very late and lose a lot. This reminds me of the proverb a stitch in time saves nine.

We need self-confidence even as an adult. Negative thinking has never helped anyone. Being positive help. There is a story for that too. This story I feel is the most important since children need to learn about self-confidence at an early stage.

All these morals have stories linked to them.
