This colorfully illustrated multicultural childrens book presents Vietnamese fairy tales and other folk stories--providing insight into a rich literary culture.

Vietnamese Childrens Favorite Stories is a charming collection of fifteen tales as told by prominent storyteller Tran Thi Minh Phuoc. In it, Tran--Minnesotas first Vietnamese librarian and an active member of the Vietnamese-American community--recounts cherished folktales such as The Story of Tam and Cam (the Vietnamese version of Cinderella), The Jade Rabbit, and The Legend of the Mai Flower. They make perfect new additions for story time or bedtime reading. With beautiful illustrations by veteran artists Nguyen Thi Hop and Nguyen Dong, children and adults alike will be enchanted by Trans English retellings. Stories in which integrity, hard work and a kind heart triumph over deception, laziness, and greed--as gods, peasants, kings and fools spring to life in legends of bravery and beauty, and fables about nature.

The Childrens Favorite Stories series was created to share the folktales and legends most beloved by children in the East with young readers of all backgrounds in the West. Vietnamese Childrens Favorite Stories will keep Vietnams folktales alive for them and the legions of young readers who enjoy multicultural childrens books and stories set in faraway lands.

Other multicultural childrens books in this series include: Asian Childrens Favorite Stories, Indian Childrens Favorite Stories, Indonesian Childrens Favorite Stories, Japanese Childrens Favorite Stories, Singapore Childrens Favorite Stories, Filipino Favorite Childrens Stories, Favorite Childrens Stories from China & Tibet, Chinese Childrens Favorite Stories, Korean Childrens Favorite Stories, Balinese Childrens Favorite Stories..
