A wealthy merchant’s prize possession is a beautiful bird. Believing that he loves the exotic creature too much to set it free, the merchant discovers that animals are sometimes better at learning by example than humans. One thing children can learn from this story is that it is good to observe others in order to learn and that sometimes the actions of others are not all that they first seem to be.
