Publisher's Description

This beautifully illustrated multicultural children's book showcases many of the stories and fairy tales from Asia.

For thousands of years, parents around the world have been telling their children stories; at bedtime, over the dinner table, and around the fire. Each country has its own set of fascinating tales, which are especially enjoyable for children to discover. Asian Children's Favorite Stories is a marvelous collection of 13 beautifully told folktales from eight major countries in Asia-China, Japan, Korea, India, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. Open the pages of this fascinating storybook to introduce your child to the wonders of Asia-and the joy of finding new favorites for story time or bedtime reading.

Asian children's stories include:
  • The Waters of Olive Lake—CHINA
  • Why Cats and Dogs Don't Get Along—KOREA
  • The Clever Rabbit and Numskull—INDIA
  • The Crane's Gratitude—JAPAN
  • Why the Tapir Has No Tail—MALAYSIA
  • Baka the Cow and Kalabaw the Water Buffalo—PHILIPPINES
  • And many more!

Editorial Reviews

"The stories are retold in crisp, contemporary idiom and use rich, expressive language that makes them great for reading aloud, whether at home or in school." — blog
