Would You live as Town Mouse or The Country Mouse | Kids BedTime Story

This beautiful story of Town Mouse and The Country Mouse is a classic AESOP story that shows the life of two different mice, one from the city and one from the country. 

The story starts when the Town Mouse once comes to the country to visit his relative Country Mouse. For lunch, the Country Mouse served wheat stalks, roots, and acorns, with cold water. The Town Mouse ate very sparingly, behaving in a way a town animal would behave, eating small and fewer bites in total, and by her manner making it very plain that she ate the simple food only to be polite. 


After the meal, the friends had a long talk. The Town Mouse talked about her life in the city while the Country Mouse listened. They then went to bed in a cozy nest in the hedgerow and slept in quiet and comfort until morning. In her sleep, the Country Mouse dreamed she was a Town Mouse with all the luxuries and delights of city life that her friend had described for her. So the next day when the Town Mouse asked the Country Mouse to go home with her to the city, she gladly said yes. 


When they reached the mansion in which the Town Mouse lived, they found on the table in the dining room the leavings of a very fine banquet. There were sweetmeats and jellies, pastries, delicious cheeses, indeed, the most tempting foods that a Mouse can imagine. But just as the Country Mouse was about to nibble a dainty bit of pastry, she heard a Cat mew loudly and scratch at the door. In great fear the Mice scurried to a hiding place, where they lay quite still for a long time, hardly daring to breathe. When at last they ventured back to the feast, the door opened suddenly, and in came the servants to clear the table, followed by the House Dog. 


The Country Mouse stopped in the Town Mouse’s den only long enough to pick up her carpetbag and umbrella. 

“You may have luxuries and dainties that I have not,” she said as she hurried away, “but I prefer my plain food and simple life in the country with the peace and security that go with it.” 

Moral -

Dear Kids!!
