That storytelling is a central part of human life has always been emphazied here. Children throughout generations listen quietly as they learn of the past through story. And it is pretty much the same everywhere today!
One of the first stories that has greatly influenced me, is from a book many consider to be the oldest in the world. It contains true life stories of various heros and heroines. This book is the Bible and it is possible you already have a copy in your home as it is also, the most widely circulated book on earth.
The Bible is a collection of little books combined to form one big book. It has been used to teach morals to children for centuries and it is still relevant.
So, every now and again stories from that book will be featured here.
The story is set in the ancient city of Shushan. At the time, King Ahaseurus was the most powerful ruler. He held a party for the princes, his friends and invited many others. It was a big party that last for days. Everyone was happy as the King asked them to do as they wished.
They all had loads to eat and drink. On the seventh day, the king was so happy with himself and made a special request. To who? What was it? Learn more from the audio recordings below and please come back here to look at the activity for the week.
Life in those days is so different from now. The rulers had so much power. They may be cruel at times and often punish people for disobeying them.
Vashti was beautiful and disrespected the King. She thus lost the crown to someone else. What would you have done differently if you were Vashti?
We need to respect anyone in authority even when we do not like them. Parents, teachers and anyone you little angels have placed in their care.
Learning about people from the past could be fascinating. Do you know what a palace looked like in Persia? How did the Queens wore? Draw a picture of a Queen, the King and the palace.
Also do you know which country the city of Shushan is located today? Send your anwer and pictures using the box below.
