I’m not sure if I’ve told you this already. But I’ve been telling bedtime stories to macho kid since he was 6 years old. He was the one who asked me to. “Mom, can you tell me a story?” I would of course, warmly comply.
Macho kid is growing up, and soon enough he would be too old to listen to my stories. That’s why I started a new podcast called Kwentong Pilipino. It’s a weekly podcast for kids (or adults), that’s all about stores for bed time. Stories are based on famous Filipino tales, fables, myths, and legends.
Episode 1 – Si Pagong at si Matsing
For the very first episode, we tell the tale of The Monkey and the Turtle. It’s a Filipino Fable written by our national hero, Jose Rizal. There are a lot of versions on-line. But I chose the one that had the most emotion and conversing between the 2 characters.
What’s great about filipino stories are their moral lessons at the end. That both kids and parents can appreciate 🙂
I hope you enjoy my very first podcast, and will upload more bedtime stories every Friday! Please follow and share with your friends.
