The LUCCA-project - short multicultural fairy tales to download and print
Octo-Pus and Crab-Mac-Claw are main characters in a number of fairy tales. The fairy tales are made to my grandchild Lucca and children all over the world. The keywords are mutual understanding through mutual inspiration. The fairy tales are translated into English, French, German, Italian, Chinese and Danish by human translators. The fairy tales are translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Greek, Russian and Dutch by computer translation. Besides children's books online there are coloring books, slide shows, mini-posters, T-shirt transfers etc.
In Hartford, Connecticut and in Calusa Elementary School, Boca Raton in Florida they use the online children's books and the coloring books in school and preschool.
The Memphis TN based web site Internet4classrooms.com has ranked the fairy tales as number one in the category "General foreign language resources". The result is heavy use of the fairy tales by Internet4classroom.com's users. SitesForTeachers.com in Tucson, AZ, which is a list of the best teacher's resource and educational sites on the net and DayCareResource.com, that focus on preschoolers and kindergarteners in all US states use the LUCCA-project every day. The publisher Pumpkin House in Columbus, Ohio has the fairy tales on the main page. Children's Museums use the LUCCA-project, too.
And then Cecelia Routsaw - Grandmother of 15 - form Greenville in Michigan wrote to me about my fairy tales:
I only have one word that best describes these books: "Awesome".
Thanks so much for the FREE downloads, they are very much appreciated.
