Today Ocarina listens #03 “Tim Learns About the Olympics” to Storynory

2016 is the year of the Olympics! After the excitement for the Olympic Games of last August we just ended to feel great emotions looking at the Paralympic Games, which was attended by over 4,300 athletes, in their own unique and (without doubt) exceptional way.

From the first edition of the modern era, in Athens in 1896, it has been 120 years, but the Olympic Games still continue to fascinate young and old people.
The question is how many people know the history and the importance of the Ancient Olympics, born in ancient Greece where they had sacred significance and the strength to interrupt the wars to let the sport win? The ancient Olympic Games were staged for almost a thousand years before falling into oblivion for a long time.

We like to greet the closing of the 31 ° th modern Olympics with a funny story entitled “Tim Learns About the Olympics” proposed by Storynory, a new Ocarina’s partner that collects more than 100 audio stories for children to download online for free.

Together with the young Tim you can learn of the history of the Olympic games in a curious and funny way.

Founded in 2005, Storynory has grown in popularity, every month around half a million mp3 files are downloaded from families, teachers and educators.  You can find a mix of original stories, fairy tales, myths and original stories, all read by professional actors and recorded with a high quality sound.

Our playlist with the most famous Andersen’s tales

On the occasion of the Andersen Festival, the most important Italian Festival dedicated to fairy tales and theater, that will be held in Sestri Levante from June 9 to 12, this week we dedicate our playlist to the famous Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen.
Translated all over the world, the tales of Andersen are directed to both children and adults and, although are characterized by a colloquial and ingenue writing, they actually contain moral teachings that are sometimes very sophisticated.

Many of Andersen’s fairy tales have inspired cartoons and famous animated films, loved by children and not only, as “The Little Mermaid” and “Frozen”.
Below we highlight some of the most famous tales in cartoon version in three different languages: Italian, English and French:

The Little Mermaid

The little match girl

The snow queen

Le scarpette rosse

La principessa sul pisello

Mignolina

Le briquet

Le sapin dessin animé

La princesse et le porcher
