The Magic Bus to Asian Folktales

When the kids get on the old school bus to go home, the mysterious new bus driver treats them to a whole series of Asian folktales. His words are sprinkled like magic-dust on them and they are transported back to Asia. His stories are new versions of old folktales such as the Chinese story where a young boy’s honesty about his own failure leads to success; and the Hmong story about two brothers, (one generous and one greedy), who find a magical tree; and, the Filipino story of a young woman who goes after bandits to avenge her father’s death. The stories are full of action and songs, and make the kids on the bus so much more aware of the richness of their own Asian heritage.
