Lexile measure:
This enchanting book delves into the history of folktales, or stories made up by peoples around the world to teach important values to their children. Traditional folktales from a variety of Native American communities and distant countries such as India and Botswana are all presented to show the commonalities shared by such diverse cultures in their classic stories. Artwork and paintings illustrate the tales, while textboxes explain important terms that are also defined in the glossary. As a part of the Common Core standards, understanding folktales is an essential skill for students, one they can develop with the help of the narrative and examples herein.
