Storytime magic casts its spell in this treasury of time-honored tales from many lands. Handed down from one generation to another are such delightful stories as "Johnny Cake," an early English peasant tale; "The Wonderful Pot" and "The Little Old Woman Who Went to the North Wind," two entertaining Danish fables; "The Gold Bugs," an old German tale; and "Why the Bear Sleeps All Winter," a popular story from the American South.
In addition to the title story young listeners will also delight in hearing such old read-aloud favorites as "The Three Bears," "The Little Girl Who Wanted the Stars," "Mr. and Mrs. Vinegar," "The Boy Who Found His Fortune," "The Discontented Coffee Pot," "Why the Bear Has a Stumpy Tail," "Chicken Little," "The Cat and the Mouse," "The Story of Lambikin," and many others.
An ideal way to introduce youngsters to the pleasures of a good story as well as inspire them to read on their own, these entertaining tales have been reset in large, easy-to-read type and accompanied by six new illustrations by Thea Kliros.
