Around the world each night, parents tell stories to children as they put them to bed. Margaret Read MacDonald -- a folklorist, storyteller, and children's librarian -- uses bedtime tales in the daytime to end her story hours on a calm note. Here she includes five of her favorites from around the world."Chin Chin Kobokama" tells the story of a young Japanese girl who overcomes her fear of the dark -- and learns there are good reasons to clean up her room. "Snow Bunting's Lullaby, " a lovely Siberian tale, shows the lengths to which Papa and Mama Bunting must go to protect their children -- and get them to sleep. A South American tale explains the movement of the sun and moon. And "Kanji-Jo, the Nestlings, " a lively Liberian tale, shows, as so many folk stories do, that there's no place like home.In elegant, finely detailed watercolors, artist Yvonne Davis joins MacDonald in guiding the reader on a bedtime trip around the world.MacDonald, Margaret Read is the author of 'Tuck-Me-in Tales : Bedtime Stories from Around the World', published 2001 under ISBN 9780613905398 and ISBN 0613905393.
