    The Snow Queen - Anderson's Fairy Tales

    The Snow Queen - Anderson's Fairy Tales

    This episode is an extra long one! After debating on whether or not to break it up into smaller episodes, I decided that it was best listened to in one go so you wouldn't have to worry about finding out how the story ends.

    Hans Christien Anderson's 'The Snow Queen' served as the original inspiration for a certain popular movie franchise although there isn't much of the original story in the movie! I hope you enjoy this version as much as I do.

    Folktales from the Ashanti Tribe - West Africa

    Folktales from the Ashanti Tribe - West Africa

    This episode brings you a few folktales from the Ashanti Tribe (Ghana) in West Africa. One of my favorite frequenters of West African lore is Anansi, and I loved being able to read some of his tales for you tonight! I highly recommend reading more about him and his place in Ashanti culture.

    Thank you all so much for being patient with me while I've been sick. It's meant so much to see the kind messages you've sent checking in. You're the best and I appreciate you!

    If you'd like folktales read from your country, just let me know! I'm happy to bring a little bit of your home back to you.

    The Emperor's New Clothes & The Tin Solider - Anderson's Fairy Tales

    The Emperor's New Clothes & The Tin Solider - Anderson's Fairy Tales

    Tonight's episode features a lovely edition of Anderson's Fairy Tales that my amazing spouse found at an antique shop in town! The illustrations are lovely and my old copy was so tattered (I read the binding glue off of my paperback copy) it was a wonderful surprise :)

    In this episode, I whisper two fairly popular stories of Hans Christien Anderson's to help soothe you to sleep. It's always a pleasure to read you a bedtime story!

    Snow-White & Rose-Red from Grimm's Fairytales

    Cinderella - From Grimm's Fairytales

    Cinderella - From Grimm's Fairytales

    Tonight's episode was specially requested from a follower on Twitter - thank you for the suggestions, CakiePamy! This version of Cinderella is a bit darker than the Disney version you may be familiar with, but I hope it's soothing to you nonetheless. I have more Grimm's Fairytales to read, so feel free to let me know what your favorites are and I'll be happy to read them to you!
