A short story for kids about fair play and knowing to lose

Two bats were training for a great flying competition in which all bats took part.

On the day of the race, the smaller bat flew incredibly well, clearly deserving the prize. The other bat, although very disappointed at not having won, ran to congratulate him, while the other bats started criticising him or went away in anger.

Grateful, the new champion decided to share the prize. The little bat had not only won the race and the prize, but he had also won a friend. And all this came about from knowing how to lose in a sporting manner.
