More About Ten Small Tales by Celia Barker Lottridge; Joanne Fitzgerald
 
 
 
Overview
Celia Barker Lottridge knows that young children respond best to tales told with inviting rhythms, and better still when the stories have reassuring endings and embody simple truths. Here Lottridge has collected and retold ten remarkably fresh folk tales from Malaysia, Russia, Indonesia, Puerto Rico, China, Africa, and India. There's the little girl that proves she is not too little to help with the family garden; the fox who takes advantage of other people's generosity until she becomes too greedy for her own good; the little boy who can't get to sleep until his grandmother brings him yet another bedtime companion; and more. The stories, complemented by serene pen-and-watercolor illustrations, promote cooperation and self-awareness and are a pleasure to read again and again.
