Not good for reluctant readers. Language especially the Iranian names
would be too strange for young readers.
Iranian folk tales
Early mature reader. Too young would not be able to understand
stories. Themes are not easily grasped by the young.
These tales include lynxes and foxes, fairies and demons, romantic
cockroaches and foolish weavers. Hardly a familiar diet for most
young readers,
I do not feel that reading these will provide children with any
significant details of life in the Iranian society we hear of or read
about in today's world. Maybe a section like for special study.

Sidebar: I think this company has done some truly memorable books
that really educate our young readers about life in foreign
countries. I cite PARVANA'S JOURNEY by Ellis for life in Pakistan
under the Taliban's influence.
