The DMS Wants to Know!

World Storytelling Day logo by Mats Rehnman.
We have been talking about how sharing our stories and experiences helps us to gain perspective. The most amazing thing is, that no matter what language is spoken, it can always be deciphered by people- we understand each other because we are all connected by the same voice. Looking into the world of Belle Teal opened up a whole line of discussion, and it was fun to share our thoughts about this topic. Learning about  Helen Keller was fascinating and discussing the book Walking to the Bus-Rider Blues by Harriette Gillem Robinet was really interesting. 

So, even though this week's riddle was a mystery, we learned that when perspective and voice combine, it's history!  : ) ~ F 


This week, the DMS wants to know...  What is something that you have recently read about that has shown you another perspective? What did you learn from it? 


We told you ours, now let's hear yours! 


For some reason, if this post does not allow your comment-  here's the link to our FB fan page if you want to join in the discussion! 


Have a wonderful, relaxing Sunday everyone!

  1. I'm currently reading "A Street Cat named Bob" by James Bowen!! Yes, it's about a cat and human friendship but I love this book because poor James was an ex-addict, living on the fringes of society - busking for a living but doing so while open to many personal dangers etc. Having Bob the cat gave him something to live for and kept him busking and staying off drugs. Anyway! It just gives a human face to the people I see busking or selling the Big Issue or just living rough on the streets. Take care

  2. I recently read The True Story of Ruby Bridges. I was so impressed with Ruby and the fact that she ahd the courage and the faith to attend school when people were protesting against her. I can't imagine how strange it must have felt for her to be the only one in school for days, because the white children were being held at home. The story showed me how important it is to stand up for what we believe. It also showed me how crazy people were to judge people based on the color of their skin.
