Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reading aloud to your children is probably the best thing you can do for their education. In this handsome colorful volume, Usborne presents a collection of stories from around the word. A nice gift idea. 2001, EDC Publishing, $16.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: A. Braga SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
Children's Literature
Gathered from all corners of the world, Usborne has produced another classic collection of stories. This book of twenty-two traditional stories has been well put together. The stories (some familiar and some perhaps not so) range from creation stories to myths to traditional folklore to lesson-teaching tales to fairy tales, and seemingly everything in between. The stories are simple but carefully retold, so as not to damage the integrity of the originals. The book is easy to read, listen to and especially to look at, with beautiful and culturally appropriate illustrations that make the stories even more captivating. An illustrated representation of a world map is located on both the front and back covers so that readers can track the country of origin of each story. This collection is already a favorite at our house. 2000, Usborne, . Ages 2 up. Reviewer: Trina Heidt
