This week’s podcast: An eight-year-old immigrant learns English to win a girl’s heart and a nerdy American teen shifts gears to find a boyfriend.
Here is the third (and last) Just One Story… episode with Jeslyn Wheeless (solo this time) from 7 August 2010.
This one might remind you of either “Cinderella” or “Rumplestiltskin.” Except that this time it’s “The Name,” one of the many stories Diane Wolkstein brought back from Haiti in the 1970’s.
“The Name” is from the book The Magic Orange Tree and Other Haitian Folktales (Random House–Schocken Books, New York, 1978, reprinted 1997).
