Tales from Around the World (10-Minute Bedtime Stories) (Paperback)
In March I think of St. Paddy's Day and things green or Irish. That
leads me to storytelling and these tales from across the globe. I like
the Aboriginal Tale that tells of an owl's friendship with a hurricane
and explains owls' big eyes. The illustrations are lush and cheerful. Be
entertained by how the bear got a stumpy tail or how the young boy's
riddle saved his parents from losing their house. There is even a tale
from Ireland. Happy Tales to you! Slainte!!!
A collection of stories full of imagination, color, and wonderful detail taken from all over the globe
Including enchanting tales taken from the storytelling heritage of many different countries and cultures, these stories are simply retold to be especially accessible to children and accompanied by lively color illustrations throughout. Magical characters from every continent abound in the multicultural tales, including a kettle that transforms into a dancing badger from Japan, an Aboriginal tale of friendship between an owl and a hurricane, and a charming tale of witches and butterflies from Persia.
