Bulgarians: Four Folk Tales.
The four Bulgarian folk tales presented in this booklet are part of an ethnic heritage studies teaching unit on Bulgarian culture. The objective of the cultural awareness project is to help American students in elementary, junior high, and high school understand and appreciate Bulgarians and their culture. Titles of the folk tales are "Poor Little Blackbird,""Dame Vixen and the Young Shepherd,""The Months," and "He Who Does No Work Neither Shall He Eat." Project developers state that these four stories are representative of the great body of folktales and childrens' stories which exist in Bulgarian folklore and that they have been handed down from generation to generation in Bulgaria and among Bulgarian immigrants to the United States to form part of the Bulgarian cultural heritage.
