All That Glitters Is Not Gold

Listen to the Story, then Read & Answer. 


Once upon a time, in a bustling kingdom, there lived a humble cobbler named Thomas. Despite his meager earnings, Thomas was content with his simple life. One day, a wealthy merchant passed through the town, adorned in lavish attire and carrying bags of gold. Seeing the merchant's opulence, Thomas couldn't help but feel envious.

Determined to attain wealth and luxury, Thomas abandoned his cobbler's shop and set off on a journey in search of riches.
