I saw this on another site, and thought it was a great question.

What about you? Maybe I can learn a few great ways from all of your answers!

They tell a story usually just the way most books tell a children's story. Fairy tales in our home usually are illustrated and told from the African centric point of view. In our home we "visit' other countries. This spring we will visit France. Our hall will become alive with famous paintings that currently hang in the Louvre. We will eat next to the Eiffel Tower that is built out of our building blocks. Visit a local French restaurant, listen to music from French musicians, and build castles by our French country side.
