About this product
- DescriptionWhen Margaret Read MacDonald published her book Three-Minute Tales in 2004, it received a warm reception from teachers, youth leaders, clergy, and public speakers, all with an insatiable need for positive, pithy stories to fill out brief amounts of presentation time. Now MacDonald is back with more stories that can stretch anywhere from one to five minutes in length, encourage audience participation, and can be adapted for a wide range of settings. These riddles, fables, origin stories, scary stories, trickster tales, and more come from Thailand, the Republic of Georgia, Mexico, Japan, Brazil, Indonesia, Korea, Zambia, Hungary, China, Egypt, the Ukraine, India, Russia, Paraguay, and the Mayan, Jewish, native American, Basque, and Africa-American traditions. These multicultural fables encourage fairness, responsibility and trustworthiness.
