The World Stories Project is “a growing collection of traditional and new stories representing the 21 most commonly spoken languages by children across the UK. These stories can be read, listened to and downloaded in English and their original language.” It also has an extensive collection of teacher resources, including lesson plans. And it’s all free!

It’s an extraordinarily impressive site, and I’m grateful to Barbara Hoskins Sakamoto for sending a tweet about it.

I’m adding the site to three “The Best…” lists:

The Best Websites For Intermediate Readers

A Beginning List Of The Best Folklore & Myth Sites

The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures
