Folktales are often stories of animals that act like humans, and that live in a world of wonder and magic. Most of these stories convey a message or moral to the reader, or explain something in a creative way. Folktales are often passed down and retold from generation to generation.
Before you write your folktale, check out these tales by Alma Flor Ada and Rafe Martin. Reading and listening to folktales will help you write your own stories.
