Earth Care: World Folktales to Talk About.


Everyone has a story to tell, and that is the basis of Margaret Read MacDonald's Earth Care: World Folktales to Talk About (Linnet Books, $17.50). MacDonald has put together a compilation of 41 educational stories from more than 30 countries and ethnicities, as far-reaching as Nigeria and Romania. The fables are grouped into general lessons about protecting the Earth and its inhabitants, from caring for wetlands to "the folly of human greed." Each story is basic enough for young children to enjoy, but adults will learn from its teachings as well. Families will also love reading the tales aloud, as most are based on oral traditions.
