THE LION WHO SAW HIMSELF IN THE WATER
El león que se vio en el agua

by Idries Shah Illustrated by Ingrid Rodriguez Spanish, translation by Angélica Villagrán de Gonzales. Ages 3 & up.
A good-natured lion is misunderstood by the rest of the jungle animals because of his loud, growling voice. He bends to drink in a pool and sees a fierce creature staring back at him. He is too frightened to drink. Just as the lion sees himself in the water, children can see themselves in him. They can use him as an example to learn to deal positively with fears and inhibitions that arise from situations they as yet may not understand.

THE OLD WOMAN AND THE EAGLE
La señora y el águila

by Idries Shah Illustrated by Natasha Delmar, Spanish translation by Rita Wirkala. Ages 3 & up.
In this amusing story, an old woman encounters an eagle for the first time. Perplexed by its unfamiliar appearance, she insists that it must be a pigeon and tried to make it so. Her efforts mirror a common pattern of human thought: altering the unfamiliar to make it acceptable.

Fatima's life is beset with what seem to be disasters. Her journey leads her from Morocco to the Mediterranean, Egypt, Turkey and, finally, to China. It is in China that she realizes that what seemed at the time to be really unfortunate events were an integral part of her eventual fulfillment.

THE SILLY CHICKEN
El pollo bobo

by Idries Shah Illustrated by Jeff Jackson, Spanish translation by Rita Wirkala. Ages 3 & up.
“Set in the Middle East, Shah's retelling of a Sufi story sends a gentle message to readers: just because someone says it's so, does not make it so...With its simple language and repeating phrases, the story begs to be told and...colorful illustrations lend a zany accent to the antics. It's a classic case of ‘the sky is falling’ from an ancient culture, and it still has the ring of truth today.” — School Library Journal
