The Barefoot Book of Animal Tales with Audio CDs
The Barefoot Book of Animal Tales, From Around the World retold by Naomi Adler, illustrated by Amanda Hall

Find out how a monkey gets the better of a crocodile; how an unassuming spider helps her community of animals when all of the stronger ones fail; and how a greedy pelican gets what he deserves when he tries to take advantage of the fish in his local lake.

All of the tales in this rich and wide-ranging collection are thought-provoking as well as entertaining. Storyteller Naomi Adler has gathered together traditional tales from cultures all over the world, introducing young readers to many traditions with nine fun-filled animal adventures. And in each instance, her intimate, witty and engaging text is beautifully complemented by the playful illustrations of Amanda Hall.

Stories included are:
  • Grandmother Spider (USA)
  • The Rabbit in the Moon (India)
  • The Dragon and the Cockerel (China)
  • The Greedy Frog (Australia)

"A celebration of animals is offered to us on this fine book of nine stories from countries including India, Brazil, Australia, Canada and Germany." School Librarian

"A valuable resource for any teacher or students, this is also a handsome gift book in the clean, uncluttered style which has become the hallmark of Barefoot Book collections for eight to twelve year-olds." Bookseller

"All the stories revolve around the basic needs for survival and the questions raised by those needs - in particular choices about saving and expending communal resources, and the relationship between man and animals." Montessori Education

"The illustrations are full of intricate details, and the animals and people depicted have a range of expressive features, sometimes humorous." Junior Bookshelf

"Written in a lively, fun-to-read style and would make a good addition to a storytelling session, country or culture project, or a unit on legends and folktales. The full color illustrations are well done and nicely picture the story. The borders on each page are done in styles to fit the culture from which the story comes and add to the appeal of the book. This volume will enhance any collection." Library Media Connection
