Rafa está lendo super bem em Português. Você sabia que os bilíngues dominam mais um dos idiomas que falam? Ele entende e fala Inglês desde que nasceu, mas como tem mais contato com o Português (mesmo estudando em uma escola bilíngue), sua língua nativa sempre será a que ele mais dominará. Isto não interfere em nada sua fluência em nenhum outro idioma. #momshomebr#comocriarfilhosbilingues#bedtimestories#bilingualkids#bilinguallifestyle ...
The Princess & the Shoemaker
I am going to tell you a story of a Princess and an old Shoemaker who lived in the German city of Quedlinburg. Quedlinburg was a quaint little City with medieval streets lined with half-timbered houses painted in all the colours of the rainbow. Overlooking the city was Quedlinburg Castle where a little Princess lived. Her name was Monica.
When Monica was five years old, she was riding her pony when suddenly she was thrown from her saddle. Landing awkwardly on the floor, Monica was never able to walk again.
Every year Monica’s father the king would host an annual ball to introduce the young ladies who were coming of age to society. Monica was too young to participate, but the king allowed her to attend and watch from the royal balcony. Monica watched in awe as the swirling debutantes danced and twirled around the room. The ladies wore beautiful dresses, and their feet were adorned with the Shoemakers shoes. Light on their feet, they appeared to float through the air transforming the music into graceful motion. Monica believed that the shoes were magic and that it was this that aided the ladies with their rhythmic elegance.
The next day Monica sent for the Shoemaker. She asked him to make her a pair of beautiful red slippers. The Shoemaker left the castle and returned the next day with a gorgeous pair of little red slippers. Kneeling before the princess, the Shoemaker lifted her tiny feet and placed them gently into the shoes. "There he said. Perfect".
Tentatively Monica wiggled her toes, she then placed her two feet gently on the ground and rose from her chair. Those attending court gasped with surprise. Monica's maid rushed to her side to prevent her from falling. Monica dismissed her with a flick of her hand. Tongue firmly between her lips in concentration Monica took her first step, then a second, then a third. "It's a miracle" her father the king shouted.
