Tales from Cultures Far and Near

told by Jim Weiss

This collection of six folktale stories is about 1 hour long. Although the cd is not amazing, it is very good at opening children’s eyes to other cultures, to the fables and trickery that are common to them all. Children will follow the stories with interest since the narrator puts on different voices for each character. You may need to explain to younger children that with the exception of one true story that took place in China, the rest of the stories are folk tales, tales passed down by word-of-mouth from generation to generation in various countries.

A great follow-up to this audio book is the Wee Sing Around the World cd, reviewed below 🙂
