These wonderful world tales are selected from the highly acclaimed 147 Traditional Stories for Primary School Children to Retell, a reference book used by teachers around the globe. In this collection for home use, we focus on tales for children aged 8 to 11.

Oral storytelling at home builds children’s confidence in their own unique voices. The tales here are short, simple, and quick to learn. Each story may be read, told, and retold, and then explored within your family to access a rich vein of world heritage, giving the family a doorway to the wonderful world of traditional tales.
