Books for Kids: Legends That Every Child Should Know

19 Stories to encourage your child

Publisher Description

Introduce a young reader in your life to the unparalleled thrill of legends and folk tales with this globe-spanning collection from Hamilton Wright Mabie. With tales from the middle Ages to the 19th century, it's a comprehensive and easy-to-read compendium of the rich tradition of myths, legends, and folklore that will enchant audiences of all ages.

This book of legend is not so sharply defined as the myth and the fairy story, and it is not always possible to separate it from these old forms of stories; but it always concerns itself with one or more characters; it assumes to be historical; it is almost always old and haunts some locality like a ghost; and it has a large admixture of fiction, even where it is not wholly fictitious. Like the myth and fairy story it throws light on the mind and character of the age that produced it; it is part of the history of the unfolding of the human mind in the world; and, above all, it is interesting.
