Lara the Yellow Ladybird ( Ladybug ) Story

Once upon a time. A long time ago, a little ladybird lived with her mother and father in a pleasant forest on a tall tree. The name of this little ladybird was Lara, and all the forest people loved her very much.

But guys! The ladybird in our story had a big difference from the rest of the ladybugs in the world! Do you know what was different?

Lara’s wings were yellow instead of red! All the people knew Lara! Well, it is clear why! Because there was only one ladybird with yellow wings in the whole world!

Lara had a lot of fun at school! He was playing with the rest of the little ladybugs, saying Jack and laughing! Their school was located on the most giant tree in the forest.

All the teachers and other students loved Lara very much because she was kind and had gorgeous wings.

But after a while, Lara started to get upset! He asks himself:

Why am I different from other ladybugs? Why are their wings red and mine yellow? Why am I not like other children?

Lara was sad every day! She didn’t like to be different from everyone else! She wanted her wings to be red like the rest of the ladybugs.

One day when Lara was very upset, she came home from school crying and said to her mother:

Mom! I wish my wings were red like the others! I wish my wings were not yellow! And then she cried a lot!

Lara’s mother, who was upset, told her:

My beautiful girl! You are so beautiful! All the forest animals love you very much! Because you are kind and funny!

Lara said as she cried:

But I like to be like everyone else!

Suddenly a thought came to Lara’s mother’s mind! She went to the jungle store and bought a red bucket from Mr. Old Turtle. Then she returned home and painted Lara’s yellow wings with a red brush!

He quickly picked up her backpack and started walking! He went to Mr. Locust and said:

Hello Mr. Locust! Look, I became like the rest of the ladybugs!

Locust said:

Who are you? I do not know you at all!

And then he flew and left! Lara was very upset! But he continued his way to school!

A little later, Lara saw a beautiful butterfly! But the butterfly didn’t recognize Lara at all and flew away without saying hello!

That day, neither the mosquito recognized Lara, Mr. Spider, nor any animals in the forest!

Lara felt lonely! When she arrived, she greeted loudly! The rest of the ladybugs answered her quietly and then started playing their own game! None of them knew Lara!

After a while, the teacher entered the class! The teacher started reading the names of the students! When she called Lara’s name, Lara stopped and said:


The teacher and the children looked at her with surprise! The teacher said:

Lara?! Did you paint your beautiful yellow wings?

Lara was very embarrassed! The teacher continued:

But your yellow wings were very beautiful! Like Sophie’s big moles or James’ long legs! This way, you are no longer Lara! No one knows you!

Lara’s friends also said:

We didn’t recognize you today, either!

Lara was so sorry that she painted her wings because she didn’t like being alone! Now she realized that her yellow wings were very beautiful!

She looked at Sophie’s big moles and James’s long legs and realized that all the cockroaches have one difference from the others!

That day after school, Lara rushed home, took a long shower, and washed her wings! She washed her wings so much that the red color disappeared, and the wings turned yellow again!

I'm a narrator obsessed with writing and telling children's stories. I believe that in the stories world, everything is much easier to understand, especially for kids.
