Re: HELP-art stories needed for literacy program at school

FYI "Getting to Know the world's Greatest Artists" is listed on page 368 in
the Sax catalog. Other books that you might consider are "Tales Alive"
(Multicultural Folktales), "Bird Tales from Near and Far" and "Tales of
Shimmering Sky" all listed on page 365 in Sax. Hope this helps. Judy
