Synopsis: "The stories in this book come from many lands and times. They deal with some of the very questions that concern us today - questions about life and death, about good and evil, and about how to live together peacefully in one world. The authors . . . have searched out and retold these old tales because they believe that there is a universal kinship among all people . . . They believe that understanding "ancient" answers can help people work out better ways of solving today's problems."
-- from the Introduction
The myths and legends in this unique collection, representing twenty-eight different cultures, highlight modern dilemmas such as how to resolve conflict, share responsibilities between men and women, and choose life goals. Philosophical issues, including the nature of reward and punishment and the meaning of living and dying, are also explored.
As refreshingly relevant today as when they were originally created, these simple, wise tales from long ago emphasize the kinship of all people and remind children that human concerns are universal. An appreciative understanding of the issues explored in Old Tales for a New Day will surely help children deal more effectively with modern problems and also stimulate discussion among children, parents, and teachers.
