Maya and the Turtle: A Korean Fairy Tale
By Soma Han & John C. Stickler
Narrated by Talulah Shadrick / 11 minutes
Soma's mother, T.M. Song, was a storyteller and this is a tale she used to tell her daughters when they were little girls. Her mother had told it to her when she was growing up in a rural village in Korea during the reign of King Kojong.. The underlying lesson is filial piety, respect for one's parents, presented in an engrossing Oriental Cinderella story..
This title won the 2014 Morning Calm Medal, voted first by upper elementary students in 12 International Schools across South Korea.. (To view the 99-second trailer visit YouTube.com and enter Maya and the Turtle.)
