  1. Goldie-Locks and the 3 Bears was special to me because my parents were always very annimated in the telling! 🙂

    My favorite folk story was also my Mama’s favorite (can you tell I’m from the South?) and she passed it on to me — the story of the two little frogs.

    Once there were two little frogs whose mother told them NEVER to go into the barn. There were dangerous things in that barn — hooves, pitchforks, the Farmer, to name just a few. One day the frogs were playing their favorite game — leapfrog — and didn’t notice that they had hopped into the barn until they jumped right into a bucket of milk. The frogs paddled frantically, but couldn’t get out of the bucket. One frog gave up, and sank to the bottom. The other frog, however, refused to give up and decided to keep paddling until help arrived. Lo and behold, the longer he paddled, the thicker the milk became until finally he churned up a piece of butter, which floated on the surface. He used that to hop out of the bucket (and, I like to think, went for help and saved his brother). The moral of the story — NEVER GIVE UP!!!

    The Three Bears was my favorite. We often had black bears in our backyard in Wisconsin.

  4. My favorite fairy tales were the ones by Aesop.
    I love to read and my grandmother had a very old copy of One Thousand and one nights, and I loved those stories too.

    The Pied Piper of Hamelin… This was my acting premier as a child and a rat!

  6. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs! I was Bashful, Happy, Grumpy, Dopey, Sleepy, Sneezy and wished I could grow up to be a Doc!

    East of the Sun, and West of the Moon. It’s an enchanting fairy tale about a beautiful princess and her Prince Charming. He lives in a castle high in the mountains, and the princess goes up to visit the prince, riding on the back of a bear! I can still see the pictures from the pages of the book in my head. It’s also a jazz song that I play on the piano, with the same title as the fairy tale.
