Great collection of wisdom stories from a broad base of cultural and religious traditions. Stories are short, and concise. Most stories are about one and half pages long a couple are longer. I use these stories often at church for "story time" during worship services. Kids love the stories and find them very approachable - adults love them too.
Ms Silf has collected classic tales from many lands and traditions and presented them in a format that is great for storytelling. Great resource for teachers and also for those who have not yet discovered these timeless tales.
We're using this in a book club. Each person reads a story and then we discuss our reactions to it. So far, it's been delightful.
