Narrated by Anne Marie, this is the tale of a mother, in needle of a cradle for her newborn baby, who just happens to find one washed ashore, and decides to take it home. When the cradle begins rocking itself, the mother blames it on the wind. But the truth soon comes out. This classic tale comes from the epic collection of creepy (and sometimes hilarious) folklore, The Thing at the Foot of the Bed and Other Scary Tales by Maria Leech.
