Chapter 4: The Surprise Lesson on Confirmation Bias

As the friends made their wishes, something unexpected happened. The tree didn't grant their wishes, and the magical glow disappeared. Confused and disappointed, the friends wondered what went wrong.

Reflecting on their journey, they realized they had fallen into a trap called "Confirmation Bias." They had only considered information that confirmed their beliefs about the first tree they found, ignoring other possibilities.

The friends learned that sometimes, it's essential to consider different viewpoints and gather more information before making up their minds. With this new understanding, they continued their adventures, wiser and more open-minded.

And so, under the moonlit sky, the friends continued to explore the magical forest, always remembering the valuable lesson they had learned about confirmation bias.
