Minotaur Tales

My kids love Greek myths and the retellings of them are an often-requested read-aloud.  The other day, my husband and I were at Toys R Us and, as usual, went to the Playmobil and Lego mystery figure bags.  My husband is incredibly good at using his "Feel-O-Vision" and getting the characters he wants.  I don't think he has ever been wrong when he decides a bag is worth buying.  This time, though, I was the one who found the cool character.  I felt and felt and was pretty sure that I had found the Minotaur we'd been looking for.  After we bought is, I opened it and I WAS RIGHT!  SCORE!

As soon as I revealed it to the children, my son, Jack, asked if he could play with it.  He promptly created this:

I'm counting it as a narration!

If you want to read the story that goes along with this playset, read one of these great books:
