Does your family have a favorite holiday meal? What are your birthday traditions? Do the older people in your family tell stories about their childhood and what life was like when they were young? All these are parts of family folklore. Tell Me a Story will help you better understand: • what family is.• the ways the generations are linked together.• how families relate to each other.• how families pass along a heritage for the future. We get strength from our family's past—and this sort of folklore also gives us hope for the future.
