Fifty Famous Stories Retold (1895), the classic collection of lore recounted by James Baldwin, serves as an early foundation for the love of literature. This volume was widely used in the United States public school system as a primer of many of the most enduring stories of Western culture. What all these stories share is their indelible mark in the worlds of letters, art, music, and drama; while these are the elemental blocks for continued literary studies, these tales of legend and history are timelessly delightful in their ability to charm and dazzle young readers. Among the fifty stories in the collection are; “A Story of Robin Hood,” “Sir Walter Raleigh,” “Pocahontas,” “George Washington and his Hatchet,” “The Story of William Tell,” “How Napoleon Crossed the Alps,” “Androclus and the Lion,” “Julius Caesar,” and “Diogenes the Wise Man” as well as many lesser known, yet indispensable tales. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Fifty Famous Stories Retold is both modern and readable.

Author James Baldwin (1841-1925) These stories are of several different classes. To one class belong the popular fairy tales which have delighted untold generations of children, and will continue to delight them to the end of time. To another class belong the limited number of fables that have come down to us through many channels from hoar antiquity. To a third belong the charming stories of olden times that are derived from the literatures of ancient peoples, such as the Greeks and the Hebrews. A fourth class includes the half-legendary tales of a distinctly later origin, which have for their subjects certain romantic episodes in the lives of well-known heroes and famous men, or in the history of a people.

Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-Fifty Famous Stories Retold by James Baldwin.This book contains a historical context, where past events or the study and narration of these events are examined. The historical context refers to the circumstances and incidents surrounding an event. This context is formed by everything that, in some way, influences the event when it happens. A fact is always tied to its time: that is, to its time. Therefore, when analyzing events that took place tens, hundreds or thousands of years ago, it is essential to know the historical context to understand them. Otherwise, we would be analyzing and judging what happened in a totally different era with a current perspectiveNo book is better at introducing children ages 6 to 9 to legendary historical figures than this collection of stories admirably told by James Baldwin at the beginning of the last century. Selecting the best from our literary heritage, Baldwin shaped it in a way that delights children of all ages. Starting with stories of heroes from British history, including King Alfred and the Cakes, King Canute on the Seashore, and Bruce and the Spider, the book continues with tales from other lands. From ancient Greece come stories of The Three Hundred Valiant,

This edition is written in English. However, there is a running Japanese thesaurus at the bottom of each page for the more difficult English words highlighted in the text. There are many editions of Fifty Famous People (A Book of Short Stories. This edition would be useful if you would like to enrich your Japanese-English vocabulary, whether for self-improvement or for preparation in advanced of college examinations. Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" English words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in Japanese, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English without using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. This edition is helpful to Japanese-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. Students who are actively building their vocabularies in Japanese or English may also find this useful for Advanced Placement (AP ) tests. TOEFL, TOEIC, AP and Advanced Placement are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book. This book is one of a series of Webster's paperbacks that allows the reader to obtain more value from the experience of reading.
