Parents’ Choice Silver Award. About ‘In the Groves’: This exquisitely crafted collection of tree myths, folktales and songs brings us around the world as we celebrate beloved groves of trees. Stories include Kansakura ~ Sacred Cherry Tree: a delicate tale of love about the cherry trees of Japan, The Dancing Spirit of the Birch from Czechoslovakia in which a young girl learns the power of dance and Three Green Ladies: a poignant legend about Midsummer Eve and the ancient tree spirits that dwell in Cornwall, England
In the Groves started out as a performance ~ a journey through the verdant groves of Boston's Arnold Arboretum at the time of the Summer Solstice. Adaptation by Diane Edgecomb from several versions of the tale, arrangement of traditional songs by Margot Chamberlain. The Birch Tree: a Russian folksong. We learned of this wonderful Russian song in an unusual way. At the end of our annual In the Groves performance in the Arnold Arboretum, we tell the story of the Dancing Spirit of the Birch. It is our last story and the birch grove is quite magical as twilight descends
It’s always exciting to read a folktale around the world when you are studying a particular country. Also, you can find a few folktales online. I absolutely love when my students complete a notebook page with this free folktale graphic organizer. It makes them really think deep about the folktale or fable and how it relates to them. Dusty is a stay at home, homeschooling mother of four and has been married to the love of her life, a Southern gentleman, for 8 years. She is trying to find her own path in this great wide world while devouring chocolate and leaning on the Lord. She blogs about homeschooling, homemaking, motherhood and faith at To the Moon and Back.
