Stories from Around the World

I was on Facebook this evening and saw a post from a teacher asking where she could find stories from other countries and cultures. So I thought I would share with you a page from a handout from our Big Books and Puppets for Children with EAL & SEN workshop which gives sources of loads of folk tales from around the world. There are loads of folk tales out there, many we already know.

So here is my list:

●     First ask parents about stories they were told when they were children.
●    Classic Folk Tales 80 Traditional stories from Around the World Retold by Nicola Baxter Published by Armadillo ISBN 978-1-84322-855-4
●    147 Traditional Stories for Primary School Children to Retell by Chris Smith PhD ISBN 978-1-907359-39-2
