Once upon a time two

Once upon a time two little bears lived in a small wood. One bear stood up very early every day , the other one loved to sleep all day long - so they never saw each other. One day they decided to build a wooden house. As they wanted to finish their work they saw each other for the very first time and they recognized that it was much more beautiful to enjoy their new homes together. It´s a wonderfull charming story about the beauty of being together narrated by one of the most famous childrenbook authors: Käthe Recheis.

Once upon a time in the land of big forests there was a little girl who had three brothers. One evening, the three boys returned from hunting in a rather distraught mood, and the oldest one said, "I have discovered traces up in the hills. They were enormous. No human being can be that big." … The little sister has also seen the mysterious traces – not too far from the hut. The next morning, after her brothers have left, she prepared a soup from chunks of meat, berries, and herbs. Then she sit next to the fire and waits. Very soon she could hear heavy thumping footsteps. The earth shaked and the walls of the hut trembled … This thrilling story – based on an old fairy tale by forest Indians – portrays a girl who overcomes her fears, and with her understanding, her kindheartedness and her love she succeeds in taming a horrible old monster, so much so that it coughs out its stony heart and becomes a human being. With this tale, told in a beautiful and simple language, the great humanist Recheis shows that the ideals of humanity, tolerance and non-violence are valid all over the world. She thus continues with the tradition of her books about native Americans.
