Story for kids on Lentils
At the end of the 14 th century, Russia was attacked by a terrible drought. The poorest people were affected the most. By spring, one peasant family didn't have a crumb left to eat. The family was small, just a mother and her son, and there was nobody who could help them.
‘Don't cry mother, I'll go into the woods and collect sticks to sell,' the boy said, and he put on his coat and left.
The warm spring sun had been replaced by a cold wind, sleet was falling and the boy's hands were frozen. But he didn't want to leave the woods until he'd gathered a big bundle of sticks. As the boy pulled out the last branch, he spotted a frail little snowdrop beside it. Its snow-white bell was covered in snow, and it was shaking.
‘Poor little flower, you're completely frozen,' the boy said, and he decided to try and protect the flower from the cold.
He took off his coat and covered the flower with it, and went off home with the bundle of sticks.
When his mum discovered her son had come home without his coat, she was furious.
‘That's your only coat, go back to the woods and get it at once!'
The boy went back to find the flower, feeling very sad. At that moment, the sun appeared again, and the flower raised its little head merrily. Something sparkled underneath its leaf, and the boy caught sight of a small coin.
‘Go into town and buy flour or bread with the coin!' his mother said joyfully when her son brought the money home.
When the boy arrived at the market, he noticed a crowd of people gathered round a man selling a huge bag of lentils for one gold coin.
‘I'm only charging one coin, but it must have been earned by honest means,' the man cried.
Lots of people came up to the man and got their money out. The man threw the coins into a tub of water and they all sank to the bottom. Then he gave them back to their owners and explained:
‘Coins earned by honest means don't sink.'
‘That's ridiculous,' the people grumbled. ‘Metal can't float on water.'
The boy finally managed to push his way through the crowd and handed the man his coin. The seller threw it into the tub. The coin wobbled a little and remained on the surface of the water.
The crowd gasped, and the man announced happily:
‘Now I've found the person who will buy my lentils.'
He brought the bag to the boy's house and advised him to plant the lentils in the field as soon as the ground warmed up.
‘This summer will be very dry, and the lentils will save you,' the man explained as he bid the boy farewell.
The boy and his mother no longer went hungry, and that summer they sowed seeds in their own field, and also in some deserted land nearby.
Another hot summer arrived. The peasants' field dried up again, and only the lentils fought off the hot, dry wind. They grew remarkably well and produced a miraculous harvest. The boy's mother was happy to share everything they had with the poorest peasants. They baked bread and cooked soup from the lentils.
The boy looked at the little flat lentils and whispered:
‘Thank you for coming to the rescue, lentils.'
The boy grew up and graduated from agricultural school, where he discovered how to ...
