Cuento de España

BREVE PRESENTACIÓN DEL PAÍS Y CUENTA-CUENTOS DE ESPAÑA

en versión en español e inglés

Buenas tardes y bienvenidos a España:

España es como hoy la conocemos gracias a la influencia de muchas culturas diferentes, que siglo tras siglo dejaron aquí su poso, celtas, fenicios, cartaginenses, griegos, romanos, visigodos, musulmanes, judíos, cristianos, el Nuevo Mundo, las guerras con Inglaterra, Francia y en varias ocasiones entre nosotros mismos, hicieron del nuestro un país de contrastes a lo largo y ancho de toda su geografía.

España ha sido, por muchos años, un país de tópicos  y se nos ha conocido en el mundo entero por nuestros típicos toros y toreros y flamencas de batas de lunares con volantes, pero eso ya ha quedado atrás y España que sigue con sus tradiciones arraigadas,  además de tópicos y flamenco, es muchas más cosas… Vídeo de España historia.

España es un país con una basta historia… hay que tener en cuenta que los primeros humanos llegaron al territorio de la actual España hace 1.200.000 años.

España es un país con un amplio e importante patrimonio natural y cultural, en arte clásico y moderno, pintura, arquitectura, artes escénicas, música, danza, teatro, cine, moda y literatura…  Vídeo de España cultural.

España es también deporte para practicar y para disfrutar. Desde el más individual al deporte de más alto nivel a nivel mundial. Desde los deportes marítimos a los deportes de montaña, desde los grandes estadios a los mejores circuitos de carreras… Vídeo de España deporte.

España es un país para disfrutar en familia, parques temáticos, zoos, enclaves naturales, playas, montañas, nieve, España lo tiene todo… Vídeo de España familiar

Además, es un país moderno con edificios de arquitectura diseñada para vivir el presente y en el futuro, formas y diseños imposibles para edificios inteligentes que albergan arte y ciencia… Vídeo de España Moderna.

Y por último España es fiesta y sol, como no, en todo su esplendor y en todas sus facetas: desde los grandes conciertos… a sus coloridos carnavales, desde sus discotecas o garitos de moda… a sus verbenas de barrio, desde sus bares y terrazas de tapas… a sus fiestas y tradiciones más populares… Vídeo de España Divertida.

Esto es sólo una pequeña muestra de lo amplio y variado que es nuestro país y nuestra cultura… como amplia y variada es su tradición oral en cuanto a leyendas, fábulas y cuentos se refiere, tradición que pasó por siglos de padres a hijos y de boca a boca.

En nuestro país varios recopiladores de cuentos se han dedicado a recabar toda esa tradición oral y ponerla por escrito como Fernán Caballero,  autora que también preparó versiones de los mitos clásicos para niños, Aurelio M. ESPINOSA e hijo, Antonio  RODRÍGUEZ ALMODÓVAR con sus Cuentos al amor de la lumbre.  Anaya, 1983. sus Cuentos de la media lunita y Cuentos populares españoles y José Antonio SÁNCHEZ PÉREZ entre otros muchos.

Cuentos muchos de ellos crueles y, a veces extremadamente duros que eran un fiel reflejo de la vida en la sociedad rural ocupada en su propia subsistencia en la que se malvivía en aquel tiempo. Y que muchos de ellos, para nada nos parecen adecuados por los modelos que argumentan, para contárselos a nuestros niños.

  • Y por eso para el cuenta-cuentos de hoy hemos elegido un cuento mucho más amable y adaptado a la edad de nuestros chicos y chicas, pero por ello no menos español. La primera vez que este cuento-secreto se contó lo hizo el Padre Luis Coloma (1851-1915), miembro de la Real Academia Española desde 1908. Desde Palacio pidieron al padre Coloma que contará un cuento cuando a Alfonso XIII, que era el abuelo de nuestro ahora rey, se le cayó un con la edad de 8 años.

Hoy traemos la versión de Ana Serna – Vara con ilustraciones de Margarita Menéndez, (ahhhhh, por cierto la autora de este libro además de escritora, trabaja como directora de un colegio de Infantil y primaria como éste en Madrid)

El Cuento se titula El RATONCITO PÉREZ  y dice así…

El Ratoncito Pérez de Ana Serna Vara

El ratoncito Pérez es, ha sido y será el personaje más popular en la vida de los niños y las niñas de todos los tiempos.

Recoge cada noche los dientes de leche caídos y los cambia por regalos. Pero…,

¿sabéis por qué el ratoncito Pérez empezó esa extraña y divertida costumbre?

¡En este libro lo descubriréis!

Al ratoncito Pérez le encanta deslizarse, de día y de noche, por el pasamanos de la escalera que conduce al sótano.

¡Mi diente!

¡Plom, plum, plam, plim, plum!

¡Mi diente!

¡Un ratón que se precie no puede vivir sin dientes!

¡Cacaraca!

–          Doña Gallina, ¿puede darme uno de sus dientes? – preguntó el ratoncito.

–          ¡Cuánto lo siento! ¡Las gallinas no tenemos dientes! Pero puedo darte esta piruleta.

Y, cacareando, se fue con él.

–          Señor Burro, ¿puede darme uno de sus dientes? – preguntó de nuevo el ratoncito.

–          ¡Lamento decirte que los burros viejecitos ya no tenemos dientes! Pero puedo darte este globo tan bonito.

Y, rebuznando, se fue con él.

–          Señor Árbol, ¿me puede dar uno de sus dientes?

–          ¡Cuánto lo siento, ratoncito Pérez! Los árboles tenemos ramas, hojas, incluso flores… ¡pero no tenemos dientes! Sin embargo, te daré esta rica nuez.

Y respirando, respirando, se fue con él.

–          Señora Rana, ¿podría darme uno de sus dientes?

–          ¿Dientes yo? ¡qué bobada! Las ranas tenemos una hermosa y larga lengua, ¡pero no tenemos dientes! ¡Toma, te daré este yoyó tan divertido! Y, saltando, se fue con él.

–          Señor cerdo, ¿sería tan amable de darme uno de sus dientes?

–          ¿Mis dientes? ¿Has dicho uno de mis preciosos dientes? ¡Ni hablar! ¿Cómo comería yo mi rica comidita? Lo que sí haré es darte esta moneda.

Y, gruñendo, se marchó con él.

–          Señor Búho, ¿me puede dar uno de sus dientes?

–          Estimado ratoncito Pérez, ¡las aves no tenemos dientes! Pero te puedo decir cómo conseguirlos. ¡Pregúntale ala Luna!

Y se fue en busca dela Luna.

–          Señora Luna, ¿dónde puedo encontrar un diente?

–          No grites tanto. Aunque esté lejos, puedo oírte perfectamente. ¡Sígueme, te conduciré a casa de Blas, al que hoy se le ha caído un diente!

Y el ratoncito Pérez siguió ala Luna.

El ratoncito Pérez, la gallina, el burro, el árbol, el cerdo y la rana suben sin hacer ruido, uno tras otro, la larga escalera.

El ratoncito Pérez entra muy despacito en la habitación donde se encuentra Blas profundamente dormido.

¡Por fin, allí, debajo de la almohada, encuentra el tan deseado diente!

¡Cuántos regalos!

El ratoncito Pérez coge con sumo cuidado el diente de Blas y, junto a su cama, le deja un montón de regalos: la piruleta, el globo, la nuez, el yoyó y la moneda.

Y para celebrarlo, el ratoncito Pérez, ahora ya muy sonriente con su diente, organiza una gran fiesta, a la que están invitados la gallina, el burro, el árbol, el cerdo, la rana, el búho y, por supuesto,la Luna.

Desde entonces, el ratoncito Pérez ya puede volver a deslizarse por el pasamanos de la escalera y hacer todas las locuras que se le ocurren, porque cuando él o cualquiera de sus amigos necesitan un diente, acuden a casa del niño al que se le haya caído ese día y se lo llevan… a cambio de un precioso regalo.

Final

Good afternoon and welcome to Spain:

Spain is as we know thanks to the influence of many different cultures, which over the centuries left their mark here, Celts, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, Muslims, Jews, Christians, the New World, the wars with England France and on several occasions between ourselves, made ours a country of contrasts across its entire geography.

Spain has been, for many years, a country of topics and have been known worldwide for our typical bulls and bullfighters and flamenco polka dot ruffled gowns, but that is behind us and Spain following their traditions rooted as well as topical and flamenco, is much more story … Video of Spain Vídeo de España historia..

Spain is a country with a rich history … we must keep in mind that the first humans arrived in the territory of present Spain 1,200,000 years ago.

Spain is a country with a large and important natural and cultural heritage in classical and modern art, painting, architecture, performing arts, music, dance, theater, film, fashion and literature … Video from Spain culture. Vídeo de España cultural.

Spain is also a sport to practice and enjoy. From a more individual sport at the highest level worldwide. From water sports to mountain sports, from soccer stadiums, the best racing circuits in Spain … Video game. Vídeo de España deporte.

Spain is a country to enjoy with family, theme parks, zoos, natural sites, beaches, mountains, snow, Spain has it all … Video family of Spain Vídeo de España familiar

It is also a modern country style buildings designed to live the present and future, shapes and designs impossible for intelligent buildings that house … Video art and science of modern Spain.  Vídeo de España Moderna.

And finally Spain is party and sun, of course, in all its splendor and all its facets: from the great concert … its colorful carnivals, from its sophisticated wine bars or clubs … their neighborhood festivals, from bars andterraces tapas … its most popular holidays and traditions … Funny Video of Spain.  Vídeo de España Divertida.

This is just a small sample of the wide and varied that it is our country and our culture … as wide and varied oral tradition is about legends, fables and stories is concerned, a tradition that for centuries passed down through families and mouth of mouth.

In our country several collectors of stories have been devoted to collect all the oral tradition and put it in writing as Fernan Caballero, author also prepared versions of classical myths for children, Aurelio M. ESPINOSA and son, Antonio Rodriguez Almodovar with their stories at the fireside. Anaya, 1983. their average lunita Tales and Folk Tales Spanish and Jose Antonio SANCHEZ PEREZ among many others.

Tales many cruel and sometimes extremely tough they were a true reflection of life in rural society engaged in their own subsistence in which malvivía at that time. And many of them seem at all adequate for the models that argue for to relate them to our children.

And so for today’s storytellers have chosen a story much more friendly and adapted to the age of our boys and girls, but it no less Spanish. The first time that this story-told secret did Father Luis Coloma (1851-1915), member of the Spanish Royal Academy since 1908. From Palace asked the father to tell a story Coloma when Alfonso XIII, who was the grandfather of our now king, he fell to the age of 8 years.
Today we bring the version of Ana Serna – Stick with illustrations by Margaret Menendez (ahhhhh, by the way the author of this book also a writer, working as director of a primary school and Children like this one in Madrid)

The tale is called The Tooth Fairy and it says …

Pérez the Mouse. Translated by Luis Gil

Pérez the Mouse is, was and will be the most popular character ever in the lives of many children.

Each night he picks up fallen baby teeth and exchanges them for gifts.

But…

Do you know why Pérez the Mouse began that funny and strange custom?

You will find it out in this book!

 

Pérez the Mouse loves to slide, day and night, along the starcase handrail leading to the basement.

My tooth!

Plom, plum, plam, plim, plum!

My tooth!

A real mouse can not live without teeth!

Cock-a-doodle-doo!

–          Mrs. Hen, can you give me one of your teeth? – Asked the mouse.

–          I’m so sorry! Chickens have no teeth! But I can give you this lollipop.

And, cackling, she went with him.

–          Mr Donkey, can you give me one of your teeth? – Asked again the little mouse.

–          I regret to say that donkeys and old people have no teeth! But I can give you this beautiful balloon.

And, braying, he went with him.

–          Mr Tree, can you give me one of your teeth?

–          I’m so sorry, Pérez the Mouse! Trees have branches, leaves and even flowers… but we have no teeth! However, I will give you this tasty walnut.

And breathing, breathing, he went with him.

–          Mrs Frog, could you give me one of your teeth?

–          My teeth? That’s nonsense! Frogs have got a long and beautiful tongue, but we have no teeth! I’ll give you this funny yo-yo!

And, jumping, she went with him.

–          Mr Pig, will you please give me one of your teeth?

–          My teeth? Did you say one of my beautiful teeth? No way! How do I eat my tasty food? But I can give you this coin.

And, grumbling, he went with him.

–          Mr. Owl, can you give me one of your teeth?

–          Dear Pérez the Mouse, birds have no teeth! But I can tell you how to get them. Ask the Moon!

And he went in search of the Moon.

–          Mrs Moon, where can I find a tooth?

–          Not so loud. Despite that I’m far away, I can hear you perfectly. Follow me, I will lead you to Blas’ home, as he’s lost a tooth today!

And Pérez de Mouse went to the moon.

Pérez the Mouse, the chicken, the donkey, the tree, the pig and the frog quietly went up, one by one, the long staircase.

Pérez the Mouse walks very slowly in the room where Blas sleeps.

Finally, there, under the pillow, he finds out the desired tooth!

Lots of gifts!

Pérez the Mouse takes Blas’ tooth carefully and next to his bed, he leaves a lot of gifts: the lollipop, the balloon, the walnut, the yo-yo and the coin.

And to celebrate, Pérez the Mouse, now smiling with his teeth, is preparing a big party, to which the chicken, the donkey, the tree, the pig, the frog, the owl and, of course, the Moon are invited.

Since then, Pérez de Mouse can slide down the staircase handrail again and do all the crazy things he wants, because when he or any of his friends need a tooth, he can go to the house of a child whose tooth fell off that day and take it… for a precious gift.

Un cordial saludo para sus niños y niñas que tienen suerte de tener una persona preocupada por su futuro y que les apoya como es usted.
