Listen to the Story


Emily was a young girl. She always wanted to have the latest toys and gadgets. She would often ask her parents for money to buy them. But they would always tell her that "money doesn't grow on trees". Emily didn't quite understand what that meant, and she thought her parents were being unfair. One day, Emily's parents took her to a local farm to show her how fruits and vegetables are grown. They explained that it takes time, effort and money to grow crops and produce food. Emily was amazed by what she saw. It finally clicked in her mind that money doesn't come easy. From then on, Emily started to appreciate the value of money. She realized that it was not something that could be obtained easily. She started to save up her pocket money and only asked for things she really needed. Emily also started to help her parents with household chores to earn extra money. Emily learned that money was earned through hard work and dedication. She also understood that it was important to be mindful of her spending habits and not take money for granted.
