This tale titled 'A friendship lost to bites' It is an ideal tool for lchildren who bite others be reflected and stop doing it.
In the great World of Fantasy there was commotion and tension. The little fairy Carmen had started to bite everything. At first, his objective was the forest. There was no fruit that he had not sunk his tooth into. And although he had received scolding and punishment, his behavior had not improved.
As the weeks went by, things had gotten worse. Now the victims were his friends, with whom he shared games and tasks. Fermin had bitten the little goblin on the left ear. Fermín was crying and Carmen excused herself by saying that since her friend was black, she thought it was made of chocolate and that it could be eaten. New scolding and new punishment.
The elf Cristina had not had better luck. This little girl had intense orange hair and Carmen explained, after the opportune bite, that she only pretended to find out if it tasted like orange. The same pretext used by our fairy after leaving the imprint of her teeth on the arm of Chinlin, a funny ogre with Chinese human ancestors. As it was yellow, Sofia said she had mistaken it for a lemon. More scolding and more punishment.
They were all very angry and in pain and no one wanted to play with Carmen again. The little fairy kept biting her teeth with everything she found, but every time she was lonely and sadder. He watched from afar as his former classmates laughed, shared toys, and played in the Fantasy forest.
Biting was beginning to bore her, she wanted to play with her friends, but every time she got close to them, they all fled flying or running. Finally, the sorceress Morgana arranged a meeting between the little ones. In it, Carmen tearfully apologized to everyone and assured that no bite was more important than having friends.
