This book has many different tales from around the world. It has different themes which are in each tale. I would use this book to show children how different cultures used to tell stories. I would recommend this book to children in grades 4 and up. ( )

The title says it all. It is a book made up of lots of tales from all over the world. Divided by theme, it is great for casual reading or just to broaden your knowledge of fairytales. ( )
