These stories are a collection of concise folktale plots retold by Heather Forest for students to explore and retell. Once students can remember a folktale's simple sequence of events, the plot can be elaborated upon and personalized with new descriptive details, new dialogue, characterization and a sense of metaphor.

These short folktales can also be used as recitation text that students can use to practice performance skills.

Have Fun! Be Creative! Invent a new way to retell an old tale.
