This is the neatest book of folk tales celebrating cultures around the world. It includes craft projects which tie into the tales as well, and is colorfully illustrated. Amazing! I'd recommend it for students K-1st grade, and it could be tied into a social students unit or folktale unit. ( )

I would definitely have this book as a part of my classroom library. I think it is really important for children to be exposed to many different cultures and folktales are a great way to do that. I may even have students look into their ancestry and find a folktale from a place they are connected to.

summary: This book tells of different places in the world. It tells different tales and myths from different places.

classroom connection: This is a perfect book to use to compare different folktales and myths with different countries.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184686223X, Hardcover)

In this beautiful anthology of folktales, young readers will learn about the way that different cultures around the world set out to live in harmony with the rhythms and patterns of nature. They will discover how to tread lightly on our precious Earth by following the easy eco-tips and by trying out some of the fun and creative activities that accompany each story. Children will discover how the residents of the Kingdom of Benin deep within the Nigerian rainforest consume less and conserve more; how the Comanche Indians respect Mother Earth by giving more than receiving; amongst Bali's coral reefs and volcanic mountain peaks is the lesson that everything in nature is connected.It helps children develop a global awareness and perspective by introducing them to many different cultures in a single collection. It suggests that the centuries-old practice of 'Living Green' is perhaps more relevant today than ever before, and shows how to adapt lifestyles to live in harmony with nature. It features hands-on activities that append each story to help children put green ideals into practice. It is a perfect anthology for the young naturalist, armchair traveller, and all-around curious mind.
