Gypsy Stories

My girls have always liked story time. Today, I didn't have a particular book in mind, so I went to the shelf and looked for something interesting. My eyes connected with a book titled Sister of the Birds by, Jerzy Ficowski. It was an old library book I had purchased at a book sale. I had never read it but you just can't go wrong with a good gypsy tale. So we cozied up on the couch and read chapter 1, Sister of the Birds, and my girls were so taken by the story, I think they must have been gypsies themselves in another time. They can't wait for story time tomorrow! Here is a list of the other chapters in this book:

The Mother of the Sun

Where Blond People Came From

The Magic Box

The Rose and the Violinist

Andrusz Who Disliked Beans

There is also a Guide to Pronunciation of Gypsy Words, About the Author, About the Translator, and About the Artist.
