Review quote

""Parents will enjoy reading these stories aloud, and children will absorb lessons about wisdom, told with kindness, humor, and simplicity." --"Publisher's Weekly "a useful addition to collections of international stories and tales." --Booklist Online "Balit's stylized illustrations retain a folk-art look and reference the origins of each selection through clothing and landscapes. Overall, this is a solid addition." --School Library Journal "Parents will enjoy reading these stories aloud, and children will absorb lessons about wisdom, told with kindness, humor, and simplicity." --Publisher's Weeklyshow more
