Description


Folktales give a verbal photograph of the words spoken by ancestors that we could never hear for ourselves. As you read the tales remember that the stories are the ancestors gifts to the world. The Philippine tale of Why The Ocean Is Salty, the Indian tale of the Talkative Tortoise, the African tale of Why the Flies Bother the Cows, the Hawaiian tale of the Origin Of Fire, the Russian tale of The Mizgir and the Japanese tale of How Tajima Shum Was Tormented By A Devil Of His Own Creation are all entertaining folktales meant for teaching many of life's important lessons. Take a trip around the world through stories and discover that in life there are those that have a greater advantage than others. People that are able to learn from the past and bridge an understanding of ideas and sentiments to the present day are paying homage to their ancestors by reading their folktales.
