Anndrena Belcher

AssemblyStudents at Powell Valley Primary School in Big Stone Gap, Virginia, helped Anndrena Belcher tell the tale of "The Two Gals" last Thursday.

Anndrena explained: "It is my adaptation from an old folktale found in the Leonard Roberts collection of tales called, Greasybeard: A Tale From the Cumberlands. This story tells of one little girl who goes to fetch a bucket of water. She falls in the well because the bucket is soooo big, and she is Kids storytellingsooo little. She finds a different world at the bottom of the well, and meets a talking log, a talking apple tree, a talking sheep and cow as she explores this new place and finds ways to survive. All kinds of lessons about relationship to environment here!"
