Korean Children's Favorite Stories

For Ages: 5 - 4
Korean Children's Favorite Stories is a captivating collection of Korean folktales for children which are still being told, just as they have been for generations. Some are Korean-specific, while others echo those told in other countries. Written with wit and pathos, they unveil the inevitable foibles of people everywhere and expose the human-like qualities of animals and the animal-like qualities of humans.

Pulsating with the rhythm of life and the seasons, these Korean fables transport the reader to a wonderland where ants talk, a baby rabbit outwits a tiger, a tree fathers a child, and a toad saves a whole village.

The Children's Favorite Stories series was created to share the folktales and legends most beloved by children in the East with young readers of all backgrounds in the West. With beautiful illustrations by Jeong Kyoung-Sim, this collection of thirteen traditional tales is sure to delight the hearts of all "children" from eight to eighty. Korean stories include:
  • The Story Bag
  • The Pheasant, the Dove, and the Magpie
  • The Bridegroom's Shopping
  • The Bad Tiger
  • The Great Flood
  • The Pumpkin Seeds
