Kindergarten-Grade 3–A collection of 33 traditional tales plus three that are original. The sources are diverse and include a Native American story, "Why the Cat Falls on Her Feet," and a story from Syria, "The Goats and the Hyena." Many of the tales, such as "The Tortoise and the Hare" and "City Mouse and Country Mouse," are familiar, but the fluid style and concise structure in which they are presented make them particularly easy to deliver. Poole's animals have a great deal of personality, and the bright watercolor illustrations are witty commentaries on the themes. The stories tie in to many different areas of the curriculum: "Rabbit and the Crops" is a tale for harvest time, "The Lion's Advice" explores the meaning of friendship, "The Woman and the Bird" is about ecology, and so on. This book is also ideal for relaxing and listening at the end of the day. Sources of other versions are included in an author's note.–Jane Barrer, Washington Square Village Creative Steps, New York City
