For thousands of years, parents around the world have been telling their children stories; at bedtime, over the dinner table and around the fire. Each country has its own set of fascinating tales, which are especially enjoyable for children to discover. "Asian Children's Favorite Stories" is a marvelous collection of 13 beautifully told folktales from eight major countries in Asia - China, Japan, Korea, India, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
"The stories are retold in crisp, contemporary idiom and use rich, expressive language that makes them great for reading aloud, whether at home or in school."--"Papertigers.org"
