Episode Info:

If you could see the future would you try and change it? Well, this is what the Baron in this story does. He learns about his son's future and tries to change it. He is determined to be the master of fate. But the more he tries to change the future the more the future comes to pass. 

"There goes fate!" is a phrase spoken by the Baron to mean one thing. But it turns out to means something different.

After listening to this story, ask your child about the order of events.

  • What happened first? What happened next? And so on. 
  • Why did the Baron want to change who his son would marry?
  • How did the fisherman find the Girl?
  • What happens to the Girl on the way to the Baron's Brother?
  • What does the Girl need to find before she shows her face again to the Baron?
  • How does she find it?
  • What do you think of the ending?
  • Of course, you can ask your own questions too.

Asking questions after a bedtime story helps your child develop comprehension and understanding of what they have heard. Don't wake them up to ask them questions, but if they are still awake, take the time to ask some interactive questions before moving on to sleep or another story.



The text of the story was written by Flora Annie Steel. Some sounds are from the free sound project. The background music is from incomptech.
