24 July / Monday Aboriginal tale “The Caterpillar Who Turned Into a Butterfly, and Why Birds Build Nests.”
A little caterpillar helps good ghost Barabaj paint the world. She dreams of wings, so as to see everything from above and be even more helpful with painting. Will a bird Willi Fast Tail help the little caterpillar? Or maybe he wants to cheat her?
The tale “A caterpillar…” is a part of the Aboriginal legend of the world creation. This is a story about why caterpillars hide themselves in cocoons before they become butterflies, and why birds build nests. The moral of the tale is also very apparent.
The tale is suitable for children over 4 years old.
25 July / Tuesday Indian tale “The Eagle who Thought He Was a Chicken”
The old Indian legend is about an eagle egg which fetched up in a henhouse. The eagle was raised as one of the flock. He was treated like an average cock, and he was thinking of himself as one. But that was up to a point.
The tale is one of the most beautiful Indian legends. It also allows the audience to choose one of the two possible endings. Besides, it confirms kids’ belief that it is good to dream and make one’s dreams come true.
The tale is suitable for children over 4 years old.
26 July / Wednesday Russian tale “The Golden Egg”
The characters of this Russian legend are: Grandma, Grandpa, and their Hen, who live in a hut in the middle of a forest. The story proves that material goods are not the most important things in life. And this is what our Hen will see, yet she will not understand it until… a certain accident happens.
Thanks to simple illustrations and concise content, even very young children can find the moral in this story, which is a really important life lesson.
The tale is suitable for children over 3 years old.

Inspiring journey with a Lion who leaves his native savannah in order to find a job, love, and future, and he goes to Paris.
