The Lovereading4Kids comment

This extremely handsome book will take children journeying to every corner of the world. It features 52 folk tales and myths, gathered from the different continents and each one is matched to an important date; these range from religious festivals to the International Day of Peace, World Oceans Day and National Tree Week. The stories are just the right length for bedtime reading and have the directness and vitality that marks a good fairy-tale telling. Christopher Corr’s illustrations dazzle, both the bright colours of spring and summer and the deeper hues of autumn and winter. A book to treasure. ~ Andrea Reece
