Welcome to The Apple Seed! Some time just about every day filled with stories for you and your family. Since 2013 we’ve been bringing you tall tales, personal tales, fairy tales, historical tales and more. All kinds of tales, from all kinds of tellers. Today we’ll start with an original story from Sheila Starks Phillips about the many jobs she’s had throughout her life- whether the stories she tells are true or stretched truths is up to you to decide! We’ll also get to hear a fun tale of friendly, sometimes foolish critters in “The Sky is Fallin’!” by Lyn Ford. Next, Pam Faro takes us to Spain and Mecca with her folk tale “Ten Chests”, and Priscilla Howe brings us down into the confines of her own childhood basement in “Laundry Soap.” You won’t want to miss a single story.
