Why a Fairy Tale?
Because it's fun to be read to, fairy tales are enchanting and this one has special meaning to me. I used to act this story out under a small grove of trees during recess in 4th grade with my childhood friend Lisa (who I am still in touch with). We both liked living in our imaginations and could picture the scenes from the story quite vividly.
As an adult, I appreciate that this story teaches endurance during times of unfairness.
This and many other tales are part of the Grimm Brother's original collection.
"The Goose Girl" (German: Die Gänsemagd) is a German fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm and first published in Grimm's Fairy Tales in 1815 (KHM 89).
The story was first translated into English by Edgar Taylor in 1826, then by many others, e.g. by an anonymous community of translators in 1865, by Lucy Crane in 1881, by LucMargaret Hunt in 1884, etc. Andrew Lang included it in The Blue Fairy Book in 1889.
The music in the background of this episode is from the Pond 5 website, piece is called Fairy Tale Visiting The Sorcerer and the composer is "Exclusive Sound."
