One of my favorite books is Jean Karl's How to Write and Sell Children's Picture Books. She takes you from developing basic skills of voice, pacing and plot to marketing and promotion, plus thoughts on living the life of a writer.

One of my favorite tales is Cinderella. I also like some of the variations of the tale, such as the one about Mufaro. I like Cinderella, because the prince sought out the underdog. She would no longer be treated badly by her sisters. The prince valued her for who she was, not for what others thought about her.

I tried to post a comment last night, but I realized that I'd like to change something. I like some of the Ashanti tales. One that I especially like is One Good Turn Deserves Another from African Folktales. I like it because the woman was not appreciative of what the owl did to help her, so she got what she deserved in the end. The lesson to be learned from this story is "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."

My son loves the Juan Bobo visits the Moon, folktale by Marisa Montes. Since my son prefers spanish language books,the rhythmic language is rich and repetitive which is great. The photographs of the moon are a perfect combination. Maria G. Lopez -javmar@prodigy.net
