In this story from Spain, we find ourselves in a small village where three silver church bells no longer ring because people have stopped being kind and generous. Everyone in the village, including the king and queen, tries to make the bells ring, but no one succeeds.  Finally, two poor boys discover the secret to making silver bells ring once again. Through their actions, we learn about the power of selflessness and generosity.
