Celebrating diversity with Expo book of Children’s Tales From Around The World

Discover the wonders of different cultures with a new digital book of 24 stories from five continents

To mark International Literacy Day on 8 September, Expo 2020 Dubai has launched Children’s Tales From Around The World, a collection of traditional children’s stories and folktales that celebrate the wonders of our planet and its people.

Combining compelling storytelling and colourful, evocative artwork, the digital collection of 24 timeless tales features words and phrases from 24 languages and is Expo 2020’s gift to children and families everywhere.

Many of the featured stories, contributed by some of Expo’s 190-plus participating countries, have been passed down through generations. They are brought to life by young artists from the country of the story’s origin, alongside professional illustrators and animators at Expo 2020, and around the world.

The stories have been chosen to help children aged 5 to 12 years explore exciting differences and shared values, broaden their world view, and gain a greater appreciation of their own heritage – as well as develop a love of reading. The collection demonstrates how Expo 2020 is providing a platform for every participating country to share the best of their cultures, while inspiring young minds and sparking curiosity for generations to come.

Children’s Tales From Around The World takes the form of a PDF document and is available for free download directly from the Expo School Programme website. It will also be available via Apple Books and Kobo.
