Animated Tales of the World 1 DVD

Suitable for ages 7-11 for English and 11-16 for MFL 

A variety of traditional stories from a range of cultures are conveyed through animation. Broadcasters from the 13 countries involved in this international project were teamed with an animation director and designer, usually from another country. Child heroes, animal heroes and grown-up heroes are portrayed in a variety of animation styles - but essentially these tales show that we are all very similar, wherever we come from.
