Once upon a time, there lived a poor farmer and his wife in a small village. The farmer grew vegetables and sold them for money. Once, he made a little extra money selling the vegetables and decided to buy a goose with the money. Soon he discovered that this was no ordinary goose – it started laying a golden egg every day! The farmer and his wife were elated and they soon became very rich.
But the farmer was greedy and decided that he’d rather have all the golden eggs at once than one a day. One night when everyone was sleeping, the farmer went to the goose and killed her. When he opened up her up, he only found one egg inside. The farmer immediately regretted his actions but it was too late. Not too long after he lost the special goose, the farmer and his wife became poor again.
