For eager explorers and inquisitive young minds

Children’s Tales From Around the World has been lovingly written and designed for readers aged between 5 and 12 years old – those who are learning to read, and reading to learn. Our goal is to spark children’s imaginations and help them discover what makes us different, as well as the values we all share – no matter which corner of the planet we call home.

Many of the tales in our collection have been passed down through time — tenderly shaped and crafted by generations of storytellers. To honour the unique cultural essence of these stories, they have been brought to life with illustrations created by local artists and schoolchildren alike.
