“Die rote Blume” is a short story – a VERY short story – from a collection by Erwin Moser. It is from his second collection about two mice named Manuel und Didi. These two mice are best friends and have all kinds of adventures. (Manuel & Didi: Das zweite große Buch der kleinen Mäuseabenteuer, 2009)
I’ve always loved reading these stories in my German story hour at the library. They are entertaining for both the children and the adults 🙂 They can be a little tricky to use for Story Listening, because there is often a humorous or ironic twist at the end. That can be hard to capture in a way that the children understand. This one is a bit more straightforward.
The children enjoyed the story, so I’m sure I’ll be telling them more about Manuel & Didi later in the year.
