Some stories to tell at story time or for assembly. Perhaps try acting the story out with a narrator or series of narrators.

The Mean Man
There once was a mean man who thought only of himself until one night he had a dream. In the dream he was taken to visit the best place and the worst place to live in the world. He went to the worst place first. He arrived to see everybody sat at a huge table filled with gorgeous foods from all over the world. A bell rang and all the people picked up the giant chopsticks with which they were going to eat reaching out across the table to pick up the delicious food. But the chopsticks were so long they couldn’t get the food in their mouths dropping it on each other, poking each other’s eyes with the ends of the chop sticks and elbowing each other in the ribs. Soon everything was covered in food and the people were still hungry and very angry. Next the mean man went to the best place in the world where he was surprised to see a table that was exactly the same. ”How can this be?” he thought. When the bell rang and the feast began the people around the table picked up the giant chopsticks as before, but this time they put food in the mouths of the people on the opposite side of the table. Lots of food was dropped and the table was a mess but everyone was laughing.

The mean man woke up from his dream very worried. He spent a long time thinking about what the dream meant and when he got to the end of his thinking he decided to try and be less mean.

The Lion and the Mouse
Once when a Lion was asleep a little Mouse began running up and down upon him. This soon woke the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him. “Pardon, O great lion,” cried the little Mouse, “forgive me this time, I shall never forget it. Who knows, I may be able to do you a good turn one of these days?”. The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him that he lifted up his paw and let him go. Sometime after, the Lion was caught in a trap, and the hunters who desired to carry him alive to the King, tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on. Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight of the Lion, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Beasts. “Was I not right?” said the little Mouse.
