Anansi is a trickster character from Akan folklore. This story is lovely and teaches a great lesson to the readers. For anyone first discovering Anansi or coming back to the delightful trickster, this book is a great choice. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful.

-Folktale Picture Book -Nature, Culture
-Retold by Kimmel, Eric A. The Frog Princess. Illus by Rosanne Litzinger. Holiday House, 2006, Unp, Everybody Book

-The Frog Princess is a mysterious and deep story that follows a feud between the headman, his daughter, and the Frog People. Depicted by simple, yet a unique drawing style with vibrant colors that represent different clans and the beautiful landscape of Southeast Alaska, this unusual love connection makes a fascinating story of transformation and symbolizes many different cultural aspects of the Tlingit people.

-Keywords: Headman, Tlingit, Salmon, Shaman

It takes a lot of work to prepare for the Passover holiday, and inevitably something goes wrong or gets forgotten, so it's Matzah Man to the rescue! In five chapters and an author's note (including an invitation to "design your own charoset"), this could practically sub in for a haggadah. It's also nicely international, and shows how people celebrate differently in different places; Matzah Man visits families in Jerusalem, San Diego, and Morocco (where they make charoset with dates, not apples and raisins. "Dates? I didn't bring any. How about a turnip?")… (mais)

This story is about Anansi the spider. At the start all the other animals think that Anansi is lazy because there is trash in his house and yard. He then goes to Hyena's house and sees Hyena has a magic stick that cleans for him. He takes the stick and uses it at his own house. In the end everything ends up okay, after Anansi accidentally causes a flood and Hyena fixes it. This is a very cool folktale and a very fun story. I think it would be a good read aloud, to help show off other cultures, for first or second grade age students.… (mais)
