Around the World Through Stories. An Annotated Bibliography of Folk Literature.
Folk, Judith A., Ed.
Part of a series entitled "Traditional Literature and Folklore in Library and Storytelling Programs," this annotated bibliography was produced by graduate students in the Traditional Literature and Oral Narration class at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The bibliography is designed to provide librarians and teachers with information about specific topics related to traditional literature and folklore, guidelines for locating additional information, and suggestions for using the myths, legends, and tales in planning storytelling sessions for various age groups. This bibliography is divided into 11 topical sections. Each section contains an introductory discussion of the topic, a list of references, and an annotated bibliography. Many sections also include a guide for exploring related topics and locating pertinent information, as well as ideas for storytelling and educational programs. The sections cover the following topics: (1) "The Hawaiian Aumakua"; (2) "Kamapua'a: The Hawaiian Pig God"; (3) "Folktales of Japan"; (4) "The Fox and the Badger in Japanese Folklore"; (5) "Fables Are for Everyone"; (6) "Scottish Tales of Merfolk;" (7) "The Irish Hero in Folklore"; (8) "West Indian Folktales;" (9) "Eclipses;" (10) "Santa Claus: Man, Myth, and Legend"; and (11) "The Origin of Fire in Myth and Folklore." Three figures are included in the final section. (SD)
