Heather is currently working on her tenth book with August House, a collection of ancient and epic tales. Ms. Forest holds a Master's Degree in Storytelling and she is a recipient of the Circle of Excellence Award presented by the National Storytelling Network. Her many performance credits include The Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C., The National Storytelling Festival, The Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, Tales of Graz Festival in Austria, the Sidmouth International Festival in England and the Glistening Waters Storytelling Festival in New Zealand.
I remember reading many of these stories as a child from various sources, in various languages. This book has put them together in simple English.
If you want a better world for your children, and wish they grow up to be good and wise humans, give them this sort of books to read at a young age, or read these stories for them.
I liked how the author modified the stories and added short rhymes at the end. It is easier to memorize them.
I wish people would write more such nice tales and make more of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood sort of show. Now a days there is way too much crazy and violent material on TV shows, cartoons, comic books, toys and video games, that is bad for the kids, we all know.
We have to act; Please give them something good.
Knowledge and peace to the world!
