Mulan learns many things on her journey, most meaningful being that family is more important than anything. She saves the Emperor and brings honor to her family.

Hello everyone! It’s been awhile. I hope all of you had a pleasant January.
I’m starting something new today called “Mythical Mondays”. Every Monday from here on out the Kid’s Blog will feature a hero of mythology and legends from around the world.
Today’s hero is Beowulf.
Beowulf is from an old English epic poem called Beowulf, which is the earliest surviving piece of English literature. It describes the story of a warrior from Sweden and his battles against monsters and his eventual kingship.

Please comment on this post if you have information to add about Beowulf or if you want to start a discussion about him.
Or, if you have a favorite mythological hero that you want to see featured on a Mythical Monday, just drop a comment in the box!
