The Thief And His Mother - from “Aesop’s
Fables” - Narrator (natural voice)
PRESS PLAY TO HEAR THE READER
A boy stole a lesson-book from one of his
schoolfellows and took it home to his Mother.  She
did not beat him, but encouraged him.  He next time
stole a cloak and brought it to her, and she again
applauded him.  The Youth, now advanced to adulthood,
proceeded to steal things of ever-greater value.  At
last he was caught in the very act, and having his
hands bound behind him, was led away to the place of
public execution.  His Mother followed in the crowd,
and she beat her breast in sorrow, whereupon the
young man said, “I wish to say something to my Mother
in her ear.”  So she came close to him, and with his
teeth he seized her ear and bit it off. In her
screams she decried him as a most unnatural child. 
He replied, “Ah! if you had beaten me when I first
stole and brought to you that lesson-book, I should
not have been led to such a disgraceful death.”

MORAL: Nip evil in the bud.
