And in honor of that, I am going to share a bit of my history and a Cuban tale. Years ago, I worked as a nanny, and took my first little guy to Story Time at the local library each week. He and I both LOVED that! And of course, I read to him all the time... and he sometimes read to me (he had memorized Green Eggs and Ham!!) This kindled my love for storytelling once again, for I read to my own children a lot! I even found videos of a storytelling contest and the stories were so GREAT! LOTS of members in my family have seen these videos! I believe reading is so very important, and can see that stitching bloggers feel the same! We sneak in a book or two, between projects! So, on to the tale! I found this tale in a book of Latin and Indian folk tales, so not your normal fare. It does have a familiar ring to it, though, as you will find out. The story is on a different PAGE at the top of my blog, called Tell a Fairy Tale Day 2012.
My hope is that you will read it and enjoy it. And IF you are so inclined, and you know of a fairy or folk tale you want to share, please send to me in an email (in my profile) and I will be very happy to post it on the page and give credit. Or you can post it on your blog--just let me know so I can read it too! Let's see how many different types of stories we can post this 'Tell a Fairy Tale Day'!
P.S. I hope to finish Feather Your Nest VERY SOON!!!
