Having good manners is not just about eating correctly, saying good morning or thanking you for something. It is also important to learn to wait for your turn, a learning that is difficult to make a child understand but basic for their education.
This children's story about good manners, Mariana and the goldfinches, teaches children through a short story why they have to wait their turn, and not interrupt or disturb others.
Mariana went out into the garden and lay down on the grass by the pool, looking up at the sky.
- What tranquility! - He said aloud, while sighing watching the clouds.
Suddenly he heard through the trees:
- Peep, peep, peep, peep, peep ...
He looked towards that place and discovered a goldfinch.
She listened delightedly, enjoying her beautiful song and, suddenly, she heard another goldfinch sing another song:
- Pííío, Pííío, Pííío Pííío, Pííío ...
At the moment, a new goldfinch sang louder, covering the voice of the other two.
- Peeep, peep, peep, peep, peep ...
As if that were not enough, a fourth goldfinch arrived and sang much louder still, so that everyone would hear only him.
- Pipipipipipíoooooo, pipipipipipíoooooo, pipipipipipioooooo, pipipipipipíoooooo ...
The goldfinches made such an uproar that it was impossible to hear anything.
- But can you know what happens to you? - Mariana said nervously. You are driving me crazy!
- Peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep ...
- It is impossible to understand each other if you all speak at the same time! - He said raising his voice. Shut up!
He said it so seriously that everyone was immediately speechless.
- If you want me to pay attention, sing one by one - he begged them - and if you sing at the same time, agree to sing the same. Otherwise, I'll go - said the girl pouting.
So the goldfinches, reflecting on what had happened, decided to agree and, all at the same time, sang a beautiful melody.
Mariana lying on the grass, delighted, listened to the concert of the goldfinches, very happy.
