Kookoo Kookaburra is a morality tale inspired by the Dreamtime. It reminds us to be kind and respectful.
It’s good to have a laugh with your friends but we shouldn’t make fun of their differences and we should never be cruel.
Kookoo is a kind and well-loved kookaburra- famous for entertaining all of the bush creatures with his funny stories.
One day Kookoo runs out of kind stories to tell so he turns to teasing and making fun of the other animals. This makes all of the bush creatures very sad. Kookoo was no longer funny, he was just a show-off. Refusing to listen to the wise words of his uncle, Kookoo finds himself alone and ignored by his friends. Even his best friend Billay couldn’t help him.
When he finally listens to the sound of his own laughter it’s a very unhappy sound. He remembers his uncle's words, ‘Kindness is like a boomerang - if you throw it often, it comes back often...’ Finally, Kookoo understands and from that day on, his kind and funny stories once again fill the bush.
Suitable for 4-10 years. 45 mins (approx).
