"For several years now," writers the author, "both teachers and parents have been asking me to write a collection of animal stories. But until I started reading traditional tales and choosing the ones I wanted to retell, I never realized why animal stories are so popular. And it's simple. Animal stories are really just stories about us! Aesop knew that, thousands of years ago. His busy ants, lazy grasshoppers, and conceited crows were just a way of exploring some very basic human flaws and virtues." Here, Bob Hartman retells three dozen animal stories from every corner of the globe, including: Why the Tortoise Has No Hair (Africa); How the Rabbit Lost Its Tail (Japan); The Monkeys and the Mangoes (India); City Mouse and Country Mouse (Ancient Greece); and Rabbit and the Crops (North America).
All kinds of animals, real and legendary, pack the pages of this delightful collection of fables and folk tales from around the world. Perfect for reading aloud and fun to read alone, The Lion Storyteller Book of Animal Tales will be enjoyed by children of all ages. Book jacket.
