Time to beat the drums and enjoy the anticipation of a 4th Story Crossroads theme reveal as part of the A to Z Blog Challenge (http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com) that happens throughout the month of April. These are 26 postings for each of the letters of the alphabet (with rest on Sundays except April 1st, no foolin’).
AND THE THEME IS…
THEME: KINDNESS ACROSS CULTURES: STORIES TO PROVE WE CARE
Storytelling expands the hearts of even the most contentious of us all. Plenty of adventure stories are to be had…though ones that celebrate kindness? Trickster tales abound, but what of the stories that seek out to help each other instead of oneself? Thus, we explore all the continents–even Antarctica–on these tales. Most will be from folktales though modern-day examples will also be shared.
As we post these fascinating pieces, please feel free to comment, share with others, and add story examples from the past or present from anywhere in the world.
HERE IS A SNEAK PEEK AS TO THE FIRST POSTS:
A = Afghanistan Ancient Adventures, posted April 1st
B = Baghdad Blues Brightened, posted April 2nd
C = Chile Cares Continuously, posted April 3rd
