This month, we’re visiting the land of India: Kashmir, to be exact, where we hear the story of The Cat Who Became a Queen.

The story of an animal getting married to a human is not only one you find in India, although this one, as you hear it, you’ll find is wonderfully detailed and very Indian indeed.

These kinds of stories are called “animal bride” stories – another example is “East O’ the Sun and West O’ the Moon,” a very famous tale. Another “animal bride” tale that you’ve probably heard of is “Beauty and the Beast.”

So now you know what KIND of tale that is. See how smart you are?

At the end, you’ll hear one of Elizabeth’s newest songs, also based on something old: a Mother Goose rhyme. The song is based on Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary. Bet you find it “quite contrary” to your expectations, though: it’s a real rock and roller.

Have a great one. See you soon!

Oops Plays Hoops

boy shooting basketThere is no failure, except to give up. Otherwise, everything else is just ruling out what doesn’t work, until you finally succeed at last.

At least, that’s what my mom always used to tell me when I’d get frustrated and want to give up.

That’s what today’s story is all about: don’t give up.

It’s what the web site, Inkless Tales, is all about, too. Visit sometime and take a look, play, read, draw, explore and more. www.inklesstales.com.

Add to Technorati Favorites

Welcome back to the Inkless Tales Podcast for Kids. Foolishness is our topic today, and we have a story, a poem and a song for you to enjoy. “Wet Roses,” “Meet My Dog,” and a story today that takes place in the rainforest about a foolish howler monkey and his wise friend, a red-eyed tree frog — a monkey who learns the value of friendship over foolishness.

Enjoy the offerings today — and if you like what you hear, visit Inkless Tales at www.inklesstales.com for more fun, games, stories and play.

All the best, Elizabeth Bushey
