Museum Artifacts:

Han Solo in CarboniteHan Solo in Carbonite – This replica of the original Han Solo prop was made from the actual molds created for the Star Wars films. In The Empire Strikes Back, the character Han Solowas captured by bounty hunter Boba Fett. Solo was flash-frozen in carbonite-alive, yet entombed. He hung as a trophy on Jabba the Hutt’s wall until being rescuedby his Rebel friends in the film, Return of the Jedi.

Millenium FalconStar Wars Millenium Falcon & Two Figures – Never tell me the odds! could well be Han Solo’s motto. Not the fresh faced hero of George Lucas’ film, Lucas considered Han Solo “a loner who realizes the importance of being part of a group and helping for the common good.” From smuggler to TCM Logo 150general for the rebel alliance, Solo along with fellow adventurer Chewbacca formed a team in the classic tale of good versus evil which blended the best of old-fashioned cliffhangers and science fiction with groundbreaking special effects. This 1981 toy Millennium Falcon was made by Kenner. Toys released after Star Wars in 1977 launched the trend of “mega-marketing” major movies with products. A new generation of fans discovered the Star Wars series with the release of episodes I, II, and III between 1999 and 2005.

The Little Red Hen Around the World

The Little Red Hen Around the World

More Tales & Stories Around the World Booklists

Armadilly ChiliThere are lots of stories you can probably rattle off without even thinking much – The Three Little Pigs, The Three Bears, Cinderella, etc. Some of these stories are so commonly told that kids all over the world know them. When the stories are told in different places though, they take on interesting differences that reflect the land and culture where the story is being told. Armadilly Chili is a Little Red Hen story from Texas. In it, a tarantula, mockingbird, and a horned toad are too lazy to help an armadillo make chili, but of course want some when it is all done!

This page is a list of several more versions of The Little Red Hen. Like Armadilly Chili, the stories are either set in a different region or country, are told from a new point of view or have some kind of fun twist to make the story unique.
