A Proud Rose and an Ugly Cactus

The Proud Rose story for kids

A long time ago in a desert, there was a beautiful rose who was proud of her beauty and smell. However, she was disgusted with growing next to a cactus.

On each and every day the Rose insult and make fun of the cactus in front of other plants yet the Cactus remained silent. Some plants laughed with rose and some of them felt bad and angry. Rose was felt superior because of her own looks. 

And then a day of flaming hot summer came and the desert became dry as well as lifeless. There was no water left for the plants under the ground. Every drop of it was evaporated. The Rose who was proud of her looks started began to wilt. Her color full petals started losing their beauty.

Suddenly a sparrow dips his mouth into the cactus to drink some water. After seeing that Rose asked Cactus “Can I?? have some of that?”. She felt ashamed while asking but kind cactus said yes without saying much.

This is how both of them became friends and spent the entire summer without any problem.


Moral: The Proud Rose Moral tale teaches kids to never judge anyone through their looks and never comment on someone’s looks.
