K-Gr 5-Seven fairy tales from around the world feature a fabric as its theme--"Clever Anaeet" (Armenia); "The Cloth of the Serpent Pembe Mirui" (Swahili); "The Silk Brocade" (China); "The Feather Cloak" (Hawaii); "The Three Fayes" (Sweden); "The Patchwork Coat" (Jewish); and "The Crocodile's Blessing" (Indonesia). This is an unabridged recording of the book of fairytales retold by Tanya Robyn Batt (Barefoot Books, 2000). The narration is clear, but listeners must concentrate to understand some unfamiliar ethnic words and names. Overall technical quality is good. Illustrations from the book may be viewed on a PC with a Web browser with Quicktime 4. Quicktime 4 downloaded easily on a home PC, but there were some problems with the network security on the library computers. The illustrations of textile art in appliqu and surface embroidery will appeal to children. Musical background adds to the flavor of the tales. Teachers and students will enjoy these stories are part of a folktale unit. Additional background and information on both the country and fabric techniques will enrich the folktales.-Ann Elders, Mark Twain Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
