“The books are tales from a rich tradition of storytelling from Central Asia and the Middle East. Stories told and retold to children, by campfire and candlelight, for more than a thousand years. Through repeated readings, these stories provoke fresh insight and more flexible thought in children. Beautifully illustrated.”
—NEA Today: The Magazine of the National Education Association

The Hoopoe Teaching-Stories series provides a multicultural program designed to meet Head Start and national performance and assessment standards and other national education standards for pre-kindergarten through first grade.

2. Center-Based Activities, which are designed to provide:
