Hello All,

Chiming in on two queries:

Norma Livo and Sandy Rietz’ early and seminal book STORYTELLING PROCESS AND PRACTICE has stories catalogued by age groups.

There are many compilations of easily-tellable tales, and I agree that Margaret Read MacDonald’s are very accessible.

All blessings on your project! What a wonderful supportive action to be bringing in the sustaining power of stories to foster children!


There are many cultural compilations of fox stories. Jewish Source: The Talmud has many fox tales. There is a whole section of them in Ellen Frankel’s Classic Tales, pages 459-472. AND, there are so many fox stories in the ancient Jataka Tales from India. Google this and see (video) and read many of them.

All best to you both in your story quests!
