Tonight, we'll read the classic Japanese folk tale, "Momotaro", or, "The Story of the Son of a Peach." The story is about a boy who comes from heaven inside a giant peach to be the son of an old childless couple. This English translation is from Yei Theodora Ozaki, who included it in her 1911 compilation, Japanese Fairy Tales.
