Old & wise, short & insightful Spellbinding Tales to Read Online
Book of Tales has all kinds of tales and stories but below you'll find a list of all its Traditional Tales.
Carried and preserved by word of mouth for centuries, or maybe even millennia, traditional tales were designed for two purposes:
1. To entertain us regardless of our age, gender or class;
2. To help us all, young and old, to make sense of our ever-expanding inner and outer worlds (either in realistic or symbolic terms).
Never were these old tales solely intended for children.
For the young and very young Book of Tales has a special section called Bedtime Stories >>
"Where are you rushing to" said he Tree to the River, "you are always in such a hurry".
I have many stories, really important stories Tree, I have got to get them to the sea as quickly as possible.
"And is the wind going to help you" said the Tree.
"Sometimes" said the River, "but the wind can be friend and foe, it is I alone am the storyteller."
(A Tale from Ireland)
