Think about a time you offered help.

Maybe you offered to help a grown-up with a chore, or a classmate with a project.

We’re about to meet a hardworking woman who offers to help someone… and in return, she gets a gift that keeps on giving!

Our story is called “A Biscuit, A Basket.” Versions have been told by people across Asia, Europe, Africa, and North and South America. We’ve taken most of our inspiration from versions told in India.

Voices in this episode include: Amy Brentano, Joe Hernandez, Erika Rose, and Saara Chaudry, who stars in The Muppets Mayhem on Disney+ and Holly Hobby on Hulu. She also stars in the award-winning animated film The Breadwinner.

This episode was adapted for Circle Round by Rebecca Sheir. It was edited by Nora Saks. Original music and sound design is by Eric Shimelonis. Our artist is Sabina Hahn.
