Once upon a time a child waits ever so patiently for the envelope to arrive in the mail. The child will open the envelope and pull out the wall hanging, smiling with delight at the picture. Next, he will carefully take out the envelope where the stickers and postcards are nestled. One by one she looks carefully at the three different pictures on the stickers, noticing all of the details and he starts to get an idea of what the tale for this month is about. Next she will look through every one of the 12 little tale cards, so many images and little story starters. Then someone special will read the tale to the child OR the child may be able to read for themselves or out loud to you. This may be all for today, or maybe choosing a tale card is just the right thing. Once the card is read and it comes to the little dot dot dot ... THIS is when the magic happens. It is up to you whether you ask the child what he or she thinks happens next, or if you want to continue weaving the tale right now or wait util tomorrow. You may wish to add something that happened earlier today or recently when you experienced something special. You may feel like incorporating something that the child is working on or may be having some trouble with where the character in the story has the same troubles and solves them in a special way. The choices are truly endless and the wonder that exists in a child in this moment when a tale is being woven especially for them is ever so precious. Enjoy!
