The Lion Book of Wisdom Stories From Around the WorldBook - 2008
Each of these stories focuses on some of the key issues that face humankind and on how they can be resolved wisely. Drawn from a variety of different cultures around the world, this book offers a glimpse of people of every background and how we can learn from one another. Issues include: sharing resources justly; how people of good faith outwit the spiteful; pride before a fall; and the nature of true riches. The illustrations from Christina Balit are fittingly ethnic in nature and bring the stories to life with brilliant hues and stylish detailing.
