Welcome to The Apple Seed, 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. Have you ever looked at a close-up picture of a walnut? If you have, you probably know that it looks kind of like a brain. Have you ever seen a shadow cross your closet that you thought was a monster, but it turns out it was just a coat? When we see things at first glance, we can make snap judgements. But sometimes in life, things are not quite as they seem. Today’s stories are about just that. On today’s episode, enjoy the following: “The Treasure Thief” by Judith Heineman from The Magic Carpet: Songs and Stories from Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt (2:15) Radio Family Journal: "Calmer Swimming" by Sam Payne (17:02) The Daily Mix: "Traveling Songs" with Steven Kapp Perry (21:20) “The Beaming Maiden” by Beatrice Bowles from Heaven’s A Garden in the Heart (28:48) “The Exploding Frog” by Donna Washington from Live and Learn: The Exploding Frog and other Stories (39:30) “Bobo and the Baseballs” by Dan Keding from The Gypsy Wagon and Other Neighborhood Tales (46:56)
