Description

The Little Book of Nursery Tales contains some of the best-known nursery tales in the tradtional European storytelling canon. But it also contains some tales which have taken on a Creole flavor after years of being told and retold in Latin America. The reader will encounter familiar favorites such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Three Little Pigs as well as tales from the Spanish tradition like Cucaracha Martinez and How Raton Perez Came Back to Life. Veronica Uribe chose these particular tales as well as five delightful rhymes, knowing that they would be the ones best-loved by younger children. She includes interesting notes at the end of the book describing the origin of each nursery tale.
