This is a collection of simple stories to be read aloud for young children, published under the Asian/Pacific Copublication Pro-gramme (ACP), with the joint efforts of Unesco Member States in Asia and the Pacific, and in cooperation with Unesco. These stories and illustrations have been contributed by 20 countries in the region and selected by Regional Editorial Committee for ACP in consultation with Unesco Member States in Asia and the Pacific. This book is the 22nd publication of ACP. All the ACP books have been translated into many languages and read by children all over the world.

Special acknowledgments are due to Kyoko Matsuoka and to T M Hoffman, who adapted the texts prepared by the participating countries, for their cooperation in additional work, and to Hanmo Sugiura for his designing work.
