Hello, my dear listeners! Oh, I’m so glad you are here. I’ve missed you to pieces.
I’ve been teaching first grade at the Cincinnati Waldorf School and telling my students stories almost every day. But I’ve also had stories sparkling in my mind for you too. Here is a new one that is the beginning of a series of stories I’ve been working on for a while. You’ll find many of our old friends from other stories I’ve shared on the April Eight Songs & Stories Podcast. But of course, if you have never heard a single one, you’ll still be able to enjoy what is going on. So come on, let’s get on with it! A great story for your kids at bath time, bedtime, car time, and family time.
Today’s story has Jemi and Sander in it. Did you know they were friends? They have some magical visitors who have come in search of a lost fairy that Jemi knows. Fortunately, Sander has an idea of a way to help all the important visitors who land in Jemi’s backyard. And Thom and Brizbane are there too!
Here is an excerpt from today’s episode:
Sander and Jemi both listened intently hoping against hope that they would hear the fairy’s song again. Sander had his eyes squeezed shut, listening with everything he had.
“What do you think is happening?” asked Sander.
“I don’t know, but I’m a little worried.” Jemi frowned.
“Well I can tell you what’s happening if you want to know,” said an unexpected voice.
Jemi and Sander eyes flew open and they were so startled they almost fell down the steps.
There, standing in front of them was a small gnome in a green jacket and a tall pointy blue hat. He looked a little sheepish, “Sorry about that. I I I, I could see that your eyes were closed and everything, so I tried to be quiet. I didn’t know what else to do.
“Thom Gnome!” said Jemi in pure delight! She was so excited she clapped her hands. Sander rubbed his eyes to make sure he was really seeing what he thought he was seeing. Even though Jemi had told him about meeting a gnome before, it’s still kinda hard to believe his eyes when one is just standing there in the backyard.
And if you have been missing Roxie, oh, believe me, she makes a noisy appearance in this episode.
If you’d like to hear the stories I’m referring to in this episode, then please listen to the first 10 episodes of the April Eight Songs & Stories Podcast, as well as episode 20, The Lost Giant.
