“The tales told by the wind are beautiful. They caress children’s hair, sometimes take their ball far away, shake the ships in the ocean. Sometimes they lay along a shore and rest and sometimes go play chess with thunders on top of a mountain. While they go, they take along the chimney smoke and bring about new tales. Then these tales collect in the sky, then fall on the face of earth – it beautifies the earth.
The Wind Tales are different from the good old tales. In times where children are more and more alienated to nature, these tales try to teach them how they can speak the language of nature. Thus they deserve taking their place at their bedside.
