Summary

ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 95
In Issue 95 of the Baba Indaba Children's Stories, Baba Indaba narrates the Norse Tale of “Gertrude’s Bird”. The story goes, Jesus and St. Peter came begging one day to a house where a woman named Gertrude lived. She took a tiny piece of dough to make them a bannock, but it covered the whole griddle just the same, and she thought it too large to give to beggars. She tried twice more, each time with less dough, but could not make a bannock small enough. So she refused to give them anything with dire consequences for herself. What were these dire consequences you ask and where does the bird come into it? Well, download and read this story to find out for yourself.

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories".

Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story, on map. HINT - use Google maps.
