My Grandpa's Stories: A Collection
Memories of story telling before the fireplace will remain with me the rest of my life. This wonderful time was followed telling before the pot-bellied stove. Later story telling would be initiated by the little listeners of such stories. Later the children would begin to read and tell their own stories. This book of fairy tales has few visuals. Today, children have sufficient means to visuals. This book is to encourage people to read and then tell their own stories. These five fairy tales have no violence, stress Christian values and end on a positive note. Froggy is the story of a tadpole who desires more space and privacy and leaves to find such a space. He is disliked then loved in his new lake. Runt tells of a goat who does not grow. His mother tells him why and he is happy. He becomes lost, but still finds happiness. The Mean Prince is young boy who never tires of being mean. Finally, he turns into an Ogre and is sent from the castle. He makes friends and eventually returns to the castle and a happy life.
