The Boy Who Cried Wolf
I am going to tell you a fable. Do you know what a fable is? A fable is a short story, typically with animals as characters, conveying a moral.
Once upon a time there was a shepherd boy
. This boy was in charge of watching the village sheep
. One day he was so bored! It would be kind of boring watching sheep. The boy thought of a funny prank he could play on the villagers. The boy yelled at the top of his lungs, “Wolf! Wolf!”
The villagers ran up the hill to where the boy was, ready to chase away the wolf and protect the sheep
. When they all got there they found the boy rolling on the ground laughing hysterically. The villagers were angry they told him, “Don’t cry wolf unless there is a wolf!” They all went back down the hill.
The next day the shepherd boy was bored again. He chuckled to himself as he remembered the prank he pulled yesterday. “I should do it again” he thought.
As loud as he could the boy yelled “Wolf! Wolf!” Once again all the villagers came running up the hill to help save the sheep. He laughed so hard he had tears in his eyes. The villagers were again angry. They said “Don’t cry wolf unless there is a wolf!”
They boy just smiled as they grumbled back down the hill and to their houses. He was so funny!
The next day the boy was watching the sheep and he saw a wolf
that was stalking the sheep. “Oh, no!” The boy yelled as loud as he could and at the top of his lungs, “Wolf! Wolf!” The villagers heard his cries but said to each other, “It is just that silly boy again. We are not falling for that again!” And they went back to their work.
The boy came down the hill and said that all the sheep were gone
. “Why did you come? I cried Wolf.” They villagers said to the boy “Nobody believes a liar…even when he is telling the truth!”

Receiving the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands is mentioned several times in Doctrine and Covenants 51–57. This might be a good opportunity to teach the children about this ordinance.
Leman Copley had covenanted to let Saints from Colesville, New York, live on his land in Ohio. But after they arrived, he broke his covenant and made them leave.
If the children seemed to enjoy one of the activities today, suggest that they repeat that activity at home with their families.
