Panchatantra short stories: Stories for kids in English with pictures.
Dividing the Panchatantra into individual stories takes off the essence of the colourful fables. Despite this fact, Panchatantra stories have spread all over the world for centuries, especially as bedtime stories for kids. We present here, a list of our versions of 60 such popular short stories from the Panchatantra, in English
. The short stories include pictures and moral messages, especially for kids.
List of Panchatantra Stories:
Book 1: The Separation of Friends
Book 2: The Gaining of Friends
Book 3: Of Crows and Owls
Book 4: Loss of Gains
Book 5: Ill-Considered Actions
Note that the above Panchatantra stories cover most of the original stories contained in the Panchatantra, and includes those found in some of the popular recensions and adaptations. However, there are some Indian fables found in many story books and on the internet which are promoted as tales from the Panchatntra, but there are no evidence of the stories being contained in the original Panchatantra, or its recensions. We have deliberately dropped such stories from this section.
