Think folk and fairy tales are all about mischievous animals, beautiful princesses and handsome princes? Think again. One of the most prominent themes in folklore is that of the strength and role of the elders, a theme that deserves revisiting today. This collection gathers traditional folktales from around the world to celebrate the wisdom, courage, and even the follies of elders. Arranged by story type, these are tales that can be used in the classroom and library, as a springboard for cultural comparisons and discussion of how wisdom is shared between generations, and how elders contribute to and are perceived by various societies.Keding, Dan is the author of 'Elder Tales: Stories of Wisdom and Courage from around the World' with ISBN 9781591585947 and ISBN 1591585945.
