The Sun and the Wind and Winter King Summer Queen

In April we had a look at two stories about the weather.

The Contest Between the Sun and the Wind.

It’s an Aesop’s Fable retold by Heather Forest. It is my favourite Aesop Fable and one I remember from being told as a child.

Heather Forest is a storyteller and author and you can find her website Story Arts here. It has some great resources and I would highly recommend it to everyone interested in storytelling.


It is illustrated by Susan Gaber and you can find her website here and some more of here illustrations from this book below.



I also told the story Winter King and Summer Queen by Mary Lister. This is a beautifully illustrated book by Diana Mayo and published by Barefoot Books. 

There are some great character names including Philippa Freezo, Danny Drizzle, Callum Cloud and there’s also a Serena Sky! Here are some more  illustrations from the book.




We then did some weather related worksheets.
