This is a story of two fleas who travel from animal to animal seeing and feeling different things. One is eager for changing and one is not. The moral of this story is to teach that you should go different places and try different things. ( )

A Flea Story is about two fleas who live on a dog. One of them always wants to go and see the world and the other one wants to stay on the dog. They sit on different animals until in the end the one who doesn't want to travel goes back to the dog and the other one flies away with a bird. This story could teach children that it's important to make many experiences, to travel, and to see new things. Although it sometimes is more comfortable to stay where you are, you should take the chance and do something in your life. ( )

This story follows the adventures of two fleas from the back of a dog to the wings of a bird. One is very anxious to see the world, while the other is simply anxious to go back to the dog where he knows it is warm and comfortable and familiar. In the end, as one flea decides to fly with birds, the other finds his way back to the dog, only to realize that it is lonely with out his friend.
It talks about the excitement of traveling and exploring new things, but also that there is no place like home. It also touches on the idea that things are better experienced with friends. ( )

They go on adventures and live on different animals such as a dog, a chicken, a porcupine, a mole, a turtle, and more. After many indecisive experiences, the fleas decide that they should each live their lives the way they seem fit.
