The Story of Bostanai – a Jewish/Persian tale from Baba Indaba Children’s Stories

ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 17 (Electronic)

In issue 17 of the Baba Indaba Children’s Stories, Baba Indaba narrates the Jewish/Persian tale of BOSTANAI – a story about the Jewish people during their captivity/exile in Babylon and how a cruel monarch was taught a lesson.

It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through Central Asia before arriving in Europe. As such, this tale is more than likely closer to the original version than you are ever likely to read.

This book also has a “Where in the World – Look it Up” section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story, on map. HINT – use Google maps.

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children’s stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as “Father of Stories”.
