In "I Believe, an Imagination with Tales and Stories by Alan Lindgren", the author shares what he does best. He is the storyteller, both classic and modern. This diverse collection will engage every reader with the broad range of human feeling and emotion, from the small child to the mature reader. The author is a master folk tale writer. The genuine folk tale has the ability to communicate equally well to adult and child, on different levels. The child loves learning the lessons of the tale because it sees itself and its peers in the down-to-earth characters with the slow pace and simple narrative. The adult sees through the characters to human nature and other human qualities, including the vices and virtues, the value of work, the priceless nature of handwork, honesty, patience, and folk wisdom. These qualities make the five folk tales treasures read aloud by the parent or teacher in the classroom for children in Grades One, Two, and Three. The other tales and stories, and the other prose, will be of interest to, evoke a wide variety of moods in, entertain, and delight older readers. The imagination of the title is genuine, moving, tender, profound, and beautifully poetic. The fact that the author is a lyric poet greatly enhances his natural abilities as a storyteller. Good and beneficial reading for adults, "I Believe" is also an excellent volume for high school literature classes, and for beginning college-level American literature courses. It is also ideal for middle to advanced level private English studies. With the addition of the story for the 3-6-year-old, and the story for 9 years and up, "I Believe" is intended for all ages. The variegated short stories and briefer prose are for mature readers and are of interest from a deeper perspective. Because the stories and other prose writings nourish the soul with feeling and love, sorrow or joy, while enlightening the spirit with humor and humanity, understanding and wisdom, this book has much to offer adult and adolescent readers. "I Believe, an Imagination with Tales and Stories by Alan Lindgren" takes the reader on the rich and wonderful travels of a gifted storyteller over the years 1987 and 1994-2013. It is 6" X 9" and 180 pages, a treasure-chest of tales and stories, and would make a suitable gift for friends, loved ones, parents, and teachers.
