King Midas has everything, a kingdom, palace and loving daughter but he is obsessed with gold. When a wanderer appears the king may just learn what real treasure is. King Midas is a great fairy tale to help adults explain to children that human relationships are more precious than material possessions. King Midas's desire for gold and wealth leads to destructive consequences, blinding him to what truly matters, his daughter Goldie. King Midas is also a great story for exploring the themes of Family, Greed, Kindness and Generosity, with your little ones. King Midas originated in Ancient Greece and is still to this day an incredibly popular and relevant teaching! Our retelling of King Midas is based on the Greek poet Ovid's "Metamorphoses," a narrative poem written in the 1st century BCE!
