A Warm Winter

“Look at this big pile of firewood I have chopped up,” said Larry the Lumberjack. “I know I will be nice and warm this winter.”

Larry the Lumberjack stacked the firewood under the overhang of the house and then he put the rest of it in the back of his pickup truck.

“I know some of the characters here in Storyland are not as fortunate as I am,” said Larry the Lumberjack, as he got into his truck and drove away. “I hear it is going to be a very cold winter.”

Larry the Lumberjack stopped by the Poor Mountain Family’s log cabin.

“Oh it is very nice to see you,” said Poor Mountain Mother, when she answered the door.

“You as well,” said Larry the Lumberjack. “I have a whole load of firewood in the back of my truck that you can have.”

“You are a lifesaver,” said Poor Mountain Mother. “Poor Mountain Father hurt his back at work the other day. We were just wondering how we were going to get some wood in for the winter. We also know it is supposed to be very cold this winter.”

Larry the Lumberjack stacked the wood beside the Poor Mountain Family’s driveway and he also brought some indoors for Poor Mountain Mother.

“Thank you so much!” cried Poor Mountain Mother. “What do we owe you?”

“Absolutely nothing,” said Larry the Lumberjack. “I am grateful you are taking it off my hands.”

“Are you sure?” asked Poor Mountain Mother. “At least let me give you a warm cup of coffee.”

“Now that I definitely could use,” said Larry the Lumberjack.


Moral of this Story:

  • It is always good to share your fortune with the less fortunate.
  • Example: Larry the Lumberjack had lots of extra firewood so he gave a truck load of it to the Poor Mountain Family.
