Infographic: “15 Fairytales From Around the World”

I’m adding this infographic to A Beginning List Of The Best Folklore & Myth Sites:

15 Fairytales From Around the World - PlaygroundEquipment.com - Infographic
PlaygroundEquipment.com

ADDENDUMN: Here is a comment left by a reader: “An interesting info graphic, but please note the term “Eskimo” is no longer an acceptable name for the people of the north. In Canada the term is Inuit / Inuk. Eskimo is seen as derogatory.
I didn’t read the rest of the descriptors thoroughly, but would hesitate to use this if in the main body there was a major flaw.”

The Best Collections Of Infographics, Charts & Maps – 2016

the-best-collections-ofdddd

I still have to post my choices for The Best Infographics of 2016 but, in the meantime, other people are beginning to publish their own choices. So I thought I’d create a separate annual “Best” list of those collections (they also include some that try to explain the year in charts and infographics).  I’ll be adding tons more over the next two weeks.

In addition to exploring these lists from others, you can check out all my lists at A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists On Infographics, including The Best Collections Of Infographics, Charts & Maps – 2015.

Look for my choices sometime next week.

I’ll add this post to All My 2016 “Best” Lists In One Place.

As I mentioned earlier, I’ll continue to add to this list and new collections are published elsewhere – there are a lot more to come (check out last year’s list to get an idea)

Here are The Best Collections Of Infographics, Charts & Maps – 2016:
