THE LITTLE SHEPHERD AND HIS SHEEP
Short Story written by: Mila
There was once a little shepherd boy called Nino, who lived in a little village at the foot of a mountain, with green meadows and a plentiful river. But it wasn’t just the beautiful nature that made the village a charming place, it was also the kindness of its one hundred inhabitants.
The little shepherd boy was always with his flock of sheep, his dog and his little donkey. Every day before the sun came up, Nino the little shepherd boy was already ready to milk the sheep and goats in his flock and then go out onto the meadows with them.
Although he was a little older now, Nino the little shepherd boy still spent all day outside, returning just before it grew dark as tired as his flock. Being a shepherd was indeed a very selfless job, for you needed to be strong and fit to spend all day every day walking through the fields. And there was the milking to be done too, so that people could have milk and cheese.
Whenever there was too much milk from milking the sheep and goats, the little shepherd boy would usually share it out among the villagers.
Nino the little shepherd boy knew that the villagers loved him a great deal, and that was why he too loved them and wanted to make them happy with little gestures of kindness.
