Welcome to The Apple Seed! Some time 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. In all parts of the world, from the beginning of stories until now, so many great stories have been told about animals. Often times, we can see distinct human personality traits and human flaws exemplified in the creatures we read about, such as sneaky foxes, tricky rabbits, noble eagles, and energetic frogs. In these stories, we learn very human lessons from non-human sources. Today’s stories are all about - or told by - animals. On today’s episode, enjoy the following: “Iron John and the Little Drummer Boy” by Willy Claflin from Sleeping Beastly and Other Tales (2:55) Radio Family Journal: "The Lark and Her Young Ones" by Sam Payne (15:43) The Daily Mix: "I Never Saw Blue Like That Before" with Don Shelline (23:12) “Aunt Edith Meets Tricky” by Bill Harley from Wacka Wacka Woo & Other Stuff (31:57) “How Beetle Got Her Colors” by Glenda Bonin from Winston the Wide Mouth Frog (48:16)
