Description

This collection of over thirty classic stories, legends, and folk tales reflects the Easter season and early summer. Stories are arranged in four sections, following the cycle of the festivals, from Holy Week to Easter and Pentecost, up to the midsummer festival of St. John.

These are stories for children aged 9-14, from the Grimm Brothers, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Selma Lagerlöf, and others, as well as excerpts from the gospels of Matthew and John.

Folktales from around the world imaginatively illustrate for young children the theme of sacrifice and the triumph of love and loyalty over adversity. Older children are led to the recurring motif of the resurrection, in which the character throws off an outer skin and emerges as a new, truer, and shining self.
