World Folktales

Long before there was television, movies, computers, or even books, people told stories to one another. These folktales delighted, informed, inspired, and educated. When people heard a tale that they liked or that particularly moved them, they made it their own by changing where it took place or how it was told. Today we are lucky to have books and other ways to share a world of stories. From Aesop’s fables to Cinderella, you are sure to recognize familiar tales in different settings.
