This short story for kids is a great Pagan-oriented folk tale. Following in the footsteps of Aesop and Kipling, it delivers its message in a fun, light way, with cute imagery and descriptions. The story actually works on a few levels, so adults and children can both get something out of it. My six year-old (who never sits still) paid attention through the whole thing and asked questions that showed she really understood what was going on. A great storytime option for kids five and up!
