"Brownies' Good Work" by Palmer Cox
For those that love classic literature with a moral bent, Palmer Cox's "Brownies' Good Work" is a wonderful example that should be read to all children. In the poem, the Brownies find a farmer unable to work his fields, due to injury. Knowing that if something isn't done for the farmer the field's yield will be lost, the Brownies chip in and help.
You can read the story here, complete with some of Palmer Cox's illustrations.
