My first look at folktales / by Rosie Banks.

Banks, Rosie, 1978- (author.).


"Folktales are stories that have been passed down for generations. Many of the most treasured tales have survived because of the oral tradition. This practice existed across many cultures too. Readers of this informative but comprehensible book will learn what makes a story a folktale as well as the famous folktales they should know, such as the Arabian Nights from the Middle East and the Anansi tales of western Africa. Beautiful imagery from these stories help support the information and will make readers excited to explore more about this genre of literature"--WorldCat.
