Jataka Tales

Ellen C. BABBITT (1872 – )

Jataka Tales form a part of the collective Indian Fairy tales with the only distinction that most of Jataka Tales have a moral. These are famous children stories and some of the stories like the “the turtle who couldn’t stop talking” and “the King’s White Elephant” are so famous that they are enacted as short plays in schools and are cited as an example in daily conversations. All the stories in this collective work have a moral, most likely being narrated by an animal.(Summary by sidhu177)

More Jataka Tales

Ellen C. BABBITT (1872 – )

The continued success of the “Jataka Tales,” as retold and published ten years ago, has led to this second and companion volume. Who that has read or told stories to children has not been lured on by the subtle flattery of their cry for “more”? The Jataka tales, regarded as historic in the Third Century B. C., are the oldest collection of folk-lore extant. They come down to us from that dim far-off time when our forebears told tales around the same hearth fire on the roof of the world.
