La oveja Teja/The weaving sheep


A story from Chile

This is an original family story, about the friendship between a weaving sheep and two little girls that have to face the coming winter season in the South of Chile, following the old saying: “today for me, tomorrow for you”.


There are children and grown-ups who, in their sleep, speak unknown languages, but there are as many who speak or understand one, two or sometimes three languages since their early years. There are also scientific studies claiming that newborns are able to recognise languages and that they cry with different accents.
There are also children and, sometimes, grown-ups who only speak one language but love to invent their own and play with sounds. So, we have decided to bring you 5 stories from around the world, told in original language.
Spanish, Danish, Turkish and German, without subtitles. If you are interested in understanding the words, you will find a transcript next to the video of the story. It could be an extra element, but it might not be necessary to enjoy the story.
