Curious kids will love celebrating the changing seasons and learning about different cultures through the stories collected in this anthology of "52 folktales and legends from around the world."
Mark the new year in January with the Russian tale of "Father Frost," observe World Wildlife Day in March with the Inuit story "The Bird Wife," greet spring and Easter with "The Basket of Eggs" from Canada, celebrate Ramadan with the Arabic tale "The Boots of Hunain," prepare for Christmas with Mexico's "The Legend of the Poinsettias"…and more! Each story is just one or two pages long, ideal for readers ages 7 to 10 to tackle on their own or for younger bluestockings to listen to at bedtime. What an enchanting way to introduce kids to new people and places! (KG)
