Many Lands, Many Stories: Asian Folktales for Children by David Conger

For thousands of years, children and adults the world over have loved to tell and listen to folktales. Each country has its own set of interesting stories, and it is especially enjoyable to discover tales that one may not have heard before. The fifteen folktales collected in this book, representing five countries of Asia, are stories that the author has heard directly from friends and acquaintances from those lands, or that are found in the classic
literature of the countries. From India we read of snakes and mongooses,
and of lions and rabbits that can talk. From Japan comes " The Crane's Gratitude," one of the most beloved stories of that land. The tales from China are fantastic yarns of magic about people who paint pictures that come to life, or who fly away into the sky and live happily ever after. Some stories tell us how things came to be (like " How the Sea Became Salty," from Japan) and why things are the way they are (such as " Why Cats and Dogs Don't Get Along," from Korea). Others teach a lesson, as in the tale from Thailand in which a jeweler learns the importance of not being greedy.

The folktales in this collection each accompanied by an illustration, will bring delight to children and adults alike. We recommend them highly both for personal reading and for reading aloud to others.
