These stories are interesting for their aspects of the individual cultures and religions they stem from. The book is complete with fascinatingly beautiful, colourful paintings by world-renowned spiritual artist Della Burford.Traditional folk tales are stories that have been handed down from ancient cultures, and these tales are from Aboriginal, Christian, and Indian Buddhist history and cultures. Aaron’s book, How the Children Became Stars, also on our site, remains very popular, providing 52 stories which contain great life lessons, and includes exercises after each story.

 

Sample Text from Spirit Storybooks – Traditional folk tales

traditional folk talesLong long ago, in the time called Dreamtime, there was a man named Bamapama who everyone thought was crazy. Bamapama andall the poeple lived under the earth where the sun stayed in one place all day long. It never went down and it was always very hot.

Bamapama decided to come up to the surface of the earth. “I’ll go hunting,” he said. When he got up to the top, he saw a bing kangaroo. Bamapama started chasing it, but he couldn;t get close enough to throw his spear.

The kangaroo hopped away to the west and Bamapama followed. The day was long ang the sun was going down farther and farther in the sky. The kangaroo stopped hopping and bamapama caught up to it. He was about to throw the spear when the sun disappeared. It was now dark.
