This week’s fairy tale is something I’m very familiar with as I’m a teacher. Children’s prattle! Oh, how familiar I am with that. We all know that children can talk for so long about things that are not really important…The story centres around some children at a party, who are bragging about their fathers. Their fathers are all so wonderfully rich and have good jobs. A poor boy who is helping in the kitchen, really wishes he was like the other kids.
However, all’s well that ends well, because as the boy grows up he becomes a fantastic well-known artist. The other kids grow up to be decent human beings. All of the bragging at the party was really only ‘children’s prattle.’
