Synopsis

Collections of tales from cultures around the globe, made accessible to younger readers Using the stunning illustrations from the popular Myths and Legends series, these collections of tales made ancient stories from cultures all around the globe accessible to younger readers. Written in simple, clear and highly readable text, Traditional Tales from Around the World contain a myriad of legends (seven in Africa, and seven in China), often with a moral twist to the tale. The books begins with an introduction, informing the reader about the people who created the stories, where they lived, and why stories are an important part of everyone's lives. Each book is beautifully illustrated in the style of the place that the stories are from. Strong multicultural content - excellent resources for understanding people all around the world. Excellent for home use as well as school libraries or classrooms (where they tie in well with the Literacy Hour). Each book in the series contains a table of contents and an index.
