February is for LOVE...Stories!
Beauty and the Beast
This month our blog will be dedicated to sharing the many stories we have in our vast treasury surrounding the Theme of LOVE...but not just traditional love stories...we will explore through our stories the many facets of love and what the main characters from each story learn about love, but more importantly, what they learn about themselves and others during the process. Some familiar stories are in our collection, Beauty & the Beast!, and some unknown stories such as the Willow Leaf Eyebrow from China which both explore the theme of Love Beyond Appearances. All of the main characters in these stories will learn the art of what it means to truly love another through lessons of Compassion, Empathy, Forgiveness, & Appreciation. And, of course, what love story collection would be complete without a story of Love brought together by Fate.
