The whistle by Benjamin Franklin.


The story tells about a boy who bought a whistle using all his money to buy an attractive whistle. The people around him laughed foolishly because he could’ve use the rest of his money to be spent on.


The story portrays about buying useful things more than just a simple object. An example of this is when you buy food, sometimes you will buy many candies rather than a meal to be full and satisfied.


The moral of the story portrays the value of things and people that are “paying too much for their whistle.”
