Raggedy Anne and the Kite 🪁

👋 Hello again friends.

Raggedy Ann had heard all about kites and now she and Marcella were watching as the boys made one. They sent the kite up into the air but it didn't fly very well. The boys said it needed more rags on the tail so Marcella suggested Raggedy Ann be tied on. The boys tied her on and up went the kite higher and higher. Raggedy Ann could see for miles and miles and thought it was wonderful until she heard the first ripping sound. What is going to happen to Raggedy Ann and the kite?

Owl with the Great Head and Eyes🦉
24:01

Hello again!

Owl with the Great Head and Eyes is a Canadian folk tale from the woods of Eastern Canada that tells a story of why Rabbit and Wolf are not friends and why Owl has such big eyes.

Until next time,
Sheryl & Clark

❤️👂📖

Canadian folklore is the traditional material that Canadians pass down from generation to generation. The largest bodies of folklore in Canada belong to the aboriginal and French-Canadian cultures. English-Canadian folklore and the folklore of recent immigrant groups have added to the country's folk heritage. There are no old castles, witches or warlocks in early Canada. However, the creation myths and early morality tales are interesting, and help us understand early Canada and the way its culture was formed. Many of these stories of course, stand in contrast to our values today.

✨ For the months of May and June we will be renewing our focus on Canadian stories and authors, with a particular focus on Prince Edward Island, a magical place away from the stresses of big cities and modern life. ✨
