The Emperor’s New Clothes

In this classic fairytale from Hans Christian Andersen, two tricksters tell a vain emperor that they can weave him the most beautiful suit of clothes that will be invisible to fools and those who are unfit for their jobs. When the suit is finished and the Emperor parades through the town to show off his “invisible” suit, it is a little child who has the courage to speak up and tell the truth. A perfect tale to spark discussions on the importance of overcoming fear and vanity to speak the truth.  (Duration 10 minutes)  Ages 4-10.
