FAMILY TALES

These anthologies of folk and fairy tales from around the world explore the relationships of different combinations of family members - fathers and daughters, mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, mothers and sons, and brothers and sisters.

Drawing on the collective wisdom of many generations, this is a book for family members to share and to celebrate both together and as individuals weaving the story of their own lives.  With colorful watercolor illustrations on every page, these tales are perfect for adults to read aloud to young children, or for older children to read independently.

Filled with traditional wisdom, these anthologies explore timeless issues like kindness, respect, self-reliance, and trust.
