We always have enough space for a guest.
A little worm enters inside a pomegranate. All the seeds are afraid of the worm. Mama
Seed takes care of her children and protects them while being nice to the stranger. The
worm asks Mama Seed to stay in the pomegranate for just a night and leave there in
the morning. Mama Seed accepts his request and ensures her children that everything
is fine. When the next morning comes, the worm has already left the pomegranate. This
story is inspired by the life of migrants and refugees and can teach children to accept
and cope with newcomers.
