Answering the call for values education, this collection of tales demonstrates how people who are faithful, generous, loving, courageous, smart, honest, and compassionate prevail in solving problems and overcoming obstacles in life. Some of the stories are author originals, others are adaptations of traditional folktales from around the world. Stories that can be read or told to children of various ages are featured in the first part of the book. The remainder of the text is designed to help children become storytellers and includes stories to act out, participatory stories, and puppet tales. Age level and the specific values taught are cited for each of the more than 30 stories. For example, the story "Hideehohee" teaches courage; "The Clever Maid" teaches responsibility; "Bunny Pink" offers a lesson in self-esteem; and "The Dishonest Innkeeper" gives a message about honesty.
