Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 02 ‘The Nightingale and the Rose’
Day 02 and our ‘One Minute Story’ is from a folktale. It is also another #OneHundredWord story.
‘The Nightingale and the Rose’ by Rose English
It is said that long ago, the Nightingale could not sing, he simply squawked. One hot summers day, he saw a beautiful white rose and fell instantly in love.
From that day he was inspired to sing. It is believed that the flower would only open her petals when she heard the Nightingale’s song.
The pair were so in love that the little bird hugged the white rose so tightly a thorn stabbed through his heart, sadly killing him. However, Nightingale’s blood splashed the rose, turning her white petals red, and thus she stayed for the rest of her days.
Share A Million Stories for World Book Day
Folk can still sign up to be part of the Million Stories Event with prizes up for grabs. All reading for a minimum of 10 minutes counts towards a story share.
DON’T FORGET: 1 story share = the number of children who are listening, so if you are reading to a group of 30, that’s 30 story shares!
