The Basket Case

The Basket Case

The story of “A Tisket, A Tasket.”

The feud went on for years – until the mystery of the disappearance of Lucy Locket’s green and yellow basket brings the families together under Mother Goose’s enigmatic wing.

BONUS:

New song:

Chameleon, Come Talk To Me

(From the upcoming book and CD: “Annie’s Animals”)

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!

Rainforest Foolishness

red-eyed tree frog and howler monkey

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
