Welcome lovers of story!  Today’s story is about a farmer’s fest to invite the animals into his barn and service. A rooster does the bidding for the farmer, possibly for territory! While Raven does the warning about the farmer. A one of a kind folktale in Andrew Lang collection in the Brown Fairy Book. Once thought to violent for children. I read the books when in the 6th and 7th grades. I would bike to the West Side Library in Colorado City with my best friend. My reading scores went up from a non-reader to excellent plus I learned about the cultures of the Europe and Middle East. All that reading of Lang, Grimm, and the other great collectors and my grammar and spelling skills are my nemesis, or possibly because of the grammar and spelling from those times.


  1. Reading is such a great way to improve writing skills, vocabulary and grammar... I love it and I always feel a bit wiser after finishing a book. :-) It is a good way to improve language skills as well after learning the basics at school!
