The Bundle Of Sticks Audiobook Story

A father has three sons who simply won’t stop fighting, so he comes up with a cunning lesson. And that lesson involves a bundle of sticks. The Bundle Of Sticks is a short and simple story but delivers a big lesson, unity and cooperation are essential for strength and success. A great lesson for children who may need a little example of how we all should share, work well with others and appreciate everyone's strengths. Our retelling finishes with an easy to understand “And the moral of the story is that together we are stronger.” The story also features themes of family unity and responsibility. Aesop's fables are a collection of ancient tales credited to the famous storyteller, Aesop who is believed to have lived in Ancient Greece during the 6th century BCE. Fables are short stories that deliver a moral lesson or practical message usually through animals or mythical creatures acting on our human experiences. These stories have influenced literature across all ages and cultures.

Why do we write bedtime stories for kids?

When we first decided to create a bedtime story for kids, we knew we wanted it to be fun, engaging and high quality.

We wanted Sooper Books to bring children's publishing into the 21st century. We strongly believe that nighttime stories for kids need to fit seamlessly into modern family lives which is why our free stories are all online.

It began when we started writing stories for our own family. Then our friends and wider families asked for copies and we started to share Sooper Books with other children.

At Sooper Books we write, curate and narrate stories for kids so they can enjoy the best quality content, enchanting stories and magical adventures. With our stories we work towards promoting a positive attitude to reading and instill a love of books in children from an early age.
