Life Lessons From Folktales

The Mean Hyena: A Folktale from Malawi

This book teaches us that if we want to play a trick on someone, we can expect that somebody will play an even bigger trick on us!

 

The Beautiful Butterfly: A Folktale from Spain

Most butterfly stories tell of how the caterpillar blossoms into the butterfly, likening it to someone discovering their true potential. This folktale is lovely because it is about two characters who love each other and it surpasses the cliché stories about butterflies.
