The bird of happinessA tittle boy calle rigor, his father was a woodcutter and his mother made clothes, their house was inthe middle of a forest.in summer the igor`s father taught him the names of the different birds a the boy know their songs. One winter, igor became ill, the doctor from the city come to see igor, then he spoke to igor`s mother and father, “ he is very ill, hut I don`t know what`s wrong with him”, many young children all I sorry but there`s nothing that I can do to help”
During the next few days, igor got worse,he spent all day in bed, and became bored with his toys. His face became white and he did not want to eat, sometimes at night he had a fever. One morning, after a very bad night, igor woke up and found his father looking at him. Is there anything that you want son?; yes, there is father, I miss the songs of the birds, could you catch a bird and put it in a cage for me? Said igor. I will bring you your bird tomorrow, now it was winter, there were no birds in the forest. This was the only thing that his son wanted, and he could not give it to him.
Afther dinner that night, he stared making the bird.igor was asleep, very quietly the father hung the bird above the boy`s bed. Later that morning , his son was watching the bird carefully. There was a light in his eyes for the firs time in many weeks; i`ve never seen a bird like it before in the forest, what`s it called? That`s a good question. I will find out and tell you later, when the woodcutter went into his son`s room and he quietly made the thread a little shorter. Three days later, he found igor kneeling on the bed, trying to touch the bird.
Again the father went at night into his son`s room and put the bird a little higher. Five days later, igor was standing on the bed, and nearly touching the bird. Days later, igor`s father was cutting wood when he heard strange sounds coming from the house, he ran quickly to his son`s bedroom. Igor was jumping up and down on his bed, laughing. Look father, I touched the bird! Shouted igor happily now please tell me, what`s its name?... it is called the bird of happiness, his father replied, and his mother, standing at the door, smiled to see her young son so full of life once more.
