Pinocchio Good Stories For Kids
(sleeping beauty short story)
Once upon a time there was a man named Geppetto who made beautiful wooden dolls. He lived alone and his dream was to have a son with whom to share all his love and affection.
One day, Geppetto made a little boy of wood. When he finished, Gepeto sighed: “I wish this wooden boy were real and could live here with me …”.
Suddenly it happened! The little wooden boy came to life!
Geppetto shouted with joy and, with laughter of happiness, said: “Be Welcome! I’ll call you Pinocchio. ”
Geppetto helped Pinocchio dress, gave him some books, kissed him on the cheek, and sent him to school to learn to read and write. But he warned him: “As soon as school is finished, Pinocchio will come home.” Pinocchio said yes and happily walked towards the school.
On the way Pinocchio noticed that there was a marionette show in the square. He joined them and danced so well that the puppet owner offered him five gold coins. Pinocchio was amazed and only thought how Geppetto would be happy when he gave him the coins.
Near the school, Pinocchio found two bad men. Because he was very naive, the two men persuaded Pinocchio to go with them to a hostel to eat and then to sleep. After eating, Pinocchio became sleepy and fell asleep easily. He dreamed that he was rich and that he and his father Gepeto were now living without difficulty and were very happy.
When he awoke, these men persuaded Pinocchio to bury his gold coins in a place that they knew and said to him: “The coins buried here will become a tree of money and never again your father, who is old and tired, you will need to work! ”
Pinocchio did so and waited for the gold coins to turn into a money tree. He waited a long time until, tired, he fell asleep. The evil men appeared and took the gold coins while Pinocchio slept.
When he woke up, Pinocchio saw that the coins had been taken away and he cried. He did not want to go home for fear that Geppetto would be angry and sad with him …
Without knowing what to do, Pinocchio began to walk, until he found a lady dressed in blue, whom he asked for help. What he did not know was that you were the blue fairy. The fairy said she would help him and asked him who his parents were and where he lived. To which Pinocchio replied: “I have no house and no one to live with.” The blue fairy realized that Pinocchio was lying and his nose began to grow!
The blue fairy replied, “Go home to your father. Be a good boy and do not lie anymore. ” Pinocchio promised that he would, and his nose returned to normal size.
Back at home, Pinocchio stopped at an amusement park and his nose began to grow again. In the park, they told him that he could eat all the ice cream he wanted … what they did not tell him was that the ice cream would turn him into a donkey!
Pinocchio ate until he could no longer, and as soon as he became a donkey, he was sold to a circus.
In the circus he was forced to work hard and was so mistreated that, shortly thereafter, he could not even walk.
Since it no longer served to work in the circus, the owner had him thrown into the sea. As soon as he fell into the sea, he became a wooden boy again.
A whale that passed by saw Pinocchio and swallowed it, thinking it was food. Inside the whale, what was not the surprise of Pinocchio when finding Gepeto! This one had gone to look for Pinocchio and ended up going to the belly of the whale. He was very weak and sick, and a fish that was also there said: “Come up both of you behind my back and I’ll take you home!”
They did so, and when they reached the house, Pinocchio took very good care of Geppetto until he was well.
The blue fairy appeared again and, seeing that Pinocchio had been so good to Geppetto, said, “Since you are now a good
boy, I will make you a real boy.”
And so it was. Geppetto had finally had the son he had longed for and the two of them were happy forever!
