The Little House with No Doors and No Windows and a Star Inside

The Little House with No Doors and No Windows and a Star Inside
Author Unknown

Once there was a little boy who had played almost all day. He had played with all his toys and all
the games he knew, and he could not think of anything else to do. So, he went to his mother and
asked, “Mother, what shall I do now?”
His mother said, “I know about a little red house with no doors and no windows and a star inside.
You can find it, if you go look for it.”
So the little boy went outside and there he met a little girl. He asked, “Do you know where there
is a little red house with no doors and no windows and a star inside?”
The little girl said, “No, I don’t know where there is a little red house with no doors and no windows
and a star inside, but you can ask my daddy. He is a farmer and he knows lots of things. He’s down
by the barn and maybe he can help you.”
So, the little boy went to the farmer down by the barn and said, “Do you know where there is a
little red house with no doors and no windows and a star inside?”
“No,” said the farmer, “I don’t know, but why don’t you ask Grandmother. She is in her house up on
the hill. She is very wise and knows many things. Maybe she can help you.”
So, the little boy went up the hill to Grandmother’s and asked, “Do you know where there is a little
red house with no doors and no windows and a star inside?”
“No,” Grandmother answered, “I don’t know, but you ask the wind, for the wind goes everywhere,
and I am sure he can help you.”
So, the little boy went outside and asked the wind, “Do you know where I can find a little red house
with no doors and no windows and a star inside?”
And the wind said, “OHHHH! OOOOOOOO!” And it sounded to the little boy as if the wind said,
“Come with me.” So the little boy ran after the wind. He ran through the grass and into the
orchard and there on the ground he found the little house – the little red house with no doors and
no windows and a star inside! He picked it up, and it filled both of his hands. He ran home to his
mother and said, “Look, Mother! I found the little red house with no doors and no windows, but I
cannot see the star!”
So this is what his mother did (cut the apple across the middle from side to side, not top to
bottom) . “Now I see the star!” said the little boy. “Do you?”
