I have very fond memories of snuggling up next to a cassette player as a child, reading along in the book while the narrator told the story of The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen. I don't know exactly why some stories stand out more in my mind than others, but The Wild Swans most definitely does for me. It's such a beautiful story about brotherly love and perseverance through injustice.
I was at the library the other day and found the exact same edition of The Wild Swans that I listened to as a child. I checked it out and Joely has been listening eagerly to it. I love that she enjoys the story as much as I did when I was her age.
What stories do you remember from your childhood that you've made sure to introduce to your own children?
