Bedtime Story – All That Glitters Is Not Gold | Bookosmia

There was a golden bird which was not a usual one. It could become invisible at any time or could change its colour.

Bedtime story - All that glitters is not gold

One day, it went to a rich family’s house. They treated the bird very nicely and fed it thrice each day. They were very loyal to the bird.

Were they treating him well because he was golden? The bird decided to test them by changing his body colour. The next day, when the owner came to feed the bird, he could not see the golden bird but just an average brown one.

They tried to shoo away the bird then they saw it changing its form back to how it was, and they were shocked to see its golden colour.

The bird understood that they were greedy people and left the house. Then the bird went to a poor family’s house in it’s average brown colour and to his surprise, the people were treating the bird as if it was a golden one. The bird was not quite convinced, so he stayed in his ugly form for a week or two. Still, the family was taking care of it.

The poor people thought it was a miracle. The bird gifted them wealth to live a happy and comfortable life.
